Josh Marshall is editor and publisher of TalkingPointsMemo.com. Full bio →
Josh Marshall is editor and publisher of TalkingPointsMemo.com, what Time Magazine calls "the prototype of what the successful Web-based news organization is likely to be in the future."
Marshall spent his early journalistic career in traditional media, writing for such respected publications as The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, The New Republic and The New York Times.
In 2000, during the presidential election recount in Florida, Marshall launched the one-man blog TalkingPointsMemo. TPM quickly developed a loyal following of people hungry for intelligent analysis of the day's politics and eager to be part of an intellectually stimulating community. Dedicating himself to the business full time, Marshall grew the site to reach millions of users, hired editorial and business staffs and opened two news bureaus. TPM is now considered one of the most innovative journalistic organizations in the country, marrying the latest web technologies to the highest standards of journalism.
Marshall received a George Polk Award in 2008 for reporting on the 2007 US Attorney firing scandal that led to the resignation of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and a Sidney Hillman award in 2006 for reporting on President Bush's attempt to phase out Social Security. TPM also won the IPI award recognizing free and independent media in 2008.
In fall 2009 Marshall was named among the most influential commentators in the nation by The Atlantic Monthly and one of the most powerful people in DC by GQ Magazine.
Marshall graduated from Princeton in 1991 and holds a doctorate in American history from Brown. He lives in New York City with his wife and their two sons.
When I saw that President Obama had decided to nominate Victoria Nuland as Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs that struck me as a pretty frontal ‘There is no Benghazi scandal; get over it’ to Senate Republicans. After all, Nuland was the voice of the State Department in the Benghazi ‘talking points’ saga.
There’s a massive (70 meters wide), man-made circular structure, between 2,000 and 12,000 years old, at the bottom of the Sea of Galilee . And nautical archeologists are trying to raise the hundreds of thousands of dollars it will take to go down and find out what it is.
