No more astroturf

Help choose the winners of this year's Falsies Awards
Welcome to the fourth annual "Falsies Awards" contest, sponsored by the Center for Media and Democracy to recognize the people and players responsible for polluting our information environment. This year, we are asking you to help identify the worst spinners and propagandists of 2007. Please read through the list of nominees below and rank them. You can also nominate additional candidates in our readers' award section.

Please note: you can vote for multiple winners in each category and the CMD judges will take the recommendations into account when deciding the falsest of the false.

Please fill out the survey before 5:00 p.m. Central Standard Time on Friday November 30, 2007 to make sure your votes are tallied.

The days of creating front groups are over and done with.

Advice for the PR agencies mentioned, if you want to vote for other nominees on this list, do so from your home computer. It would really be humiliating to be caught voting for your competition.
