As a result, The Daily Beast is this evening congratulating John Avlon for his second consecutive win in the category of online, 100,000-plus monthly uniques. Meanwhile, LA Weekly editor-in-chief Sarah Fenske early this afternoon tweeted out her heartiest congrats to Gendy Alimurung, victorious in the 50,000-plus print, general interest bracket. From the judges’ comments:
