Blogger wins a Polk

Joshua Micah Marshall of the blog Talking Points Memo has won a Polk Award, one of journalism's highest honors.

From Editor & Publisher:

• Joshua M. Marshall, editor and publisher of Talking Points Memo, who wins The Polk Award for Legal Reporting.

"His site, www.talkingpointsmemo.com, led the news media coverage of the politically motivated dismissals of United States attorneys across the country. Noting a similarity between firings in Arkansas and California, Marshall (with staff reporter-bloggers Paul Kiel and Justin Rood) connected the dots and found a pattern of federal prosecutors being forced from office for failing to do the Bush Administration's bidding."

I think it's well-deserved and I hope it inspires other independent bloggers to pursue news as well as commentary.
