"Since we were launched in 2003, FactCheck.org has received several honors for our work sorting truth from spin in politics. In 2006, TIME magazine named us one of “25 Sites We Can’t Live Without,” and also that year the World E-Gov Forum named us one of 10 sites that “are changing the world.” In 2008, PC Magazine called us one of the “20 Best Political Websites.” FactCheck.org won a 2010 Sigma Delta Chi Award from the Society of Professional Journalists for reporting on deceptive claims made about the federal health care legislation. In addition, we won a 2009 Clarion Award for presidential election coverage the previous year."
