Truthdig

Truthdig was voted the best political blog as part of the 2010 Webby Awards, and the good folks behind the blog like to say they are "drilling beneath the headlines." The blog describes itself as a "progressive journal of news and opinion" that challenges conventional wisdom and provides a reliable source for those readers who want to explore topics in-depth. Truthdig offers multiple ways to get that in-depth coverage. There are "Podcasts", "Q&A" (which are live chats), "A/V Booth" (which has audio interviews, video clips and interactive slideshows), and "Cartoons", sometimes the most searing editorials of all. The "Digs" link on the menu at the top of the homepage features articles that are in multiple parts. There are at least a dozen topics, such as "Education", "Gay Cinema", "China", "Religion" and "Iraq", and each provides a thorough analysis. The article on education "The Questions Education Reformers Aren't Asking" is a well-written and timely five- part article by a faculty member at UCLA.
