Joshua Micah Marshall and his Talking Points Memo franchise have just won a prestigious Polk Award. This is a key development in recognition of blogging.
The judges sited specifically Josh and his team’s work in connecting the dots in the patterned firing of US attorneys.
Josh is a co-parent of The Washington Note. He pushed me for two years to start this — he got the site designed and launched — and he has been one of my closest friends and partners on many big policy and political efforts.
So, to the other dad of TWN, congrats on setting such a high standard that we all aspire to in the blogosphere.
But don’t worry Sam (son on Josh’s shoulders), we aren’t jealous. . .
