Our election coverage wins a Clarion Award


We’re going to have to get a bigger trophy case.

FactCheck.org’s 2008 election coverage has been selected by the Association for Women in Communications for one of its Clarion Awards. We’re both honored and pleased by this additional recognition, which comes on the heels of our third consecutive Webby “People’s Voice” Award for best political site on the Internet.

The 2009 Clarion competition attracted nearly 500 entries in various categories. Our election coverage won in the category of “Online Publication” aimed at a public audience. According to the AWC, “[T]he Clarions, named for the medieval trumpet known for its clarity, symbolize excellence in clear, concise, communications.”
