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.
So this week I cleverly lured a large of people into calling me a statist lickspittle, managed to get Daniel Ellsberg to call me “stupid” and inadvertently got Mort Sahl to namecheck me in a tweet. If my hippy father were still alive he would definitely be kvelling. Short of resurrecting Lenny Bruce and getting him to somehow take note of me, I’m not sure what mix of things could have made him happier.
I’m sitting here watching Chris Christie get the feel-good overstuffed chairs conversation with Bill Clinton to talk about storm relief at the Clinton Global Initative. I’d say the apostasy is almost complete. By November I expect to see him running on the Working Families Party ticket.
A small thing but sort of remarkable. In his first statement on gay marriage as pope, Pope Francis deliberately avoided…
On the general issue of intervention in Syria, I shared my thoughts here. Separate from that, however, the degree of regional sectarian escalation that seems be happening is astounding. After Hezbollah committed itself to support the Assad regime (remember, both have deep alliances with Shia Iran), there have been calls around the Sunni Arab world to join the jihad in Syria.
