Vote Falsies 2008!

It's your chance to vote for the worst candidates -- and enjoy it!

Groucho maskNow's the time for you to participate in the fifth annual "Falsies Awards" contest, held by the Center for Media and Democracy to shine an unflattering light on those responsible for polluting our information environment.

As you look back at 2008, who stands out, for their shameless spinning? The ballot includes sneaky spooks, pandering pundits, big business bullies, and many more.

Like any good ballot, there's room for write-in candidates -- our "Readers' Choice" Falsies. We're also asking you to sincerely nominate people or groups who have championed honest discourse over the past year, for our "Win Against Spin" Awards.

Please fill out the survey by 5:00 pm (U.S. central standard time) on Monday, December 1, 2008, to make sure your votes are tallied. You can vote for multiple winners in each category; our awards committee will factor that into their deliberations. Please note that you must vote on at least eight of our nominees for your ballot to be counted. (We don't need anyone stuffing our Falsies!)

Stay tuned to and the Weekly Spin email digest for a revealing look at our Falsies Awards winners, in December.

Do your civic duty -- vote for the Falsies!
