Congrats to Josh Marshall and TPM

POST MASTERS: Josh Marshall, left, owns and runs TPM Media. Talking Points Memo also led in chronicling the scandals involving GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff. “Hundreds of people out there send clips and other tips,” Marshall said. “There is some real information out there, some real expertise.” With him is reporter Paul Kiel.

Make sure you check out the great profile on Josh Marshall and Talking Points Memo from Saturday's LA Times. It's a great read, very flattering and even says the unspeakable: that electronic journalism is doing things that traditional print isn't covering - or following as they should.

Congrats to Josh and his team at TPM - one of my favorite sites, for sure.
