Analysis

The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences announced May 1 that voters in the annual Webby "People’s Voice" competition chose FactCheck.org as winner in both the politics and government categories. Webbies are billed as "the Oscars of the Internet."

There were five nominees in each category, and sponsors said this year’s competition attracted a record number of votes from the public. "We’re both honored and inspired," said FactCheck.org Director Brooks Jackson. "This tells us our audience appreciates what we’re doing. We’re going to work hard as the 2008 presidential campaign unfolds to justify the faith our subscribers have placed in us."
