PolitiFact wins National Press Foundation award

PolitiFact has scooped the National Press Foundation’s 2008 online journalism award, according to a release from the foundation.

The site, which was developed by the St. Petersburg Times and Congressional Quarterly used its Truth-O-Meter to rank candidates’ statements during the US presidential campaigns.

It was previously recognised by the Knight Batten Award for Innovation in Journalism and though it’s been on a break since the elections, a statement on the site says it will return in January.
