Josh Marshall’s Talking Points Memo is twenty years old
TPM remains one of the best, and to my mind, purest distillations of online publishing in the short history of the medium. Josh has a keen understanding of not just his beat — politics — but how journalism can and should work on the internet. The past twenty years have seen one seismic shift after another for publishers and TPM has remained steadfast throughout, not chasing trends, and doing fantastic work. It’s hard to overstate how groundbreaking the site has been, I have no doubt it will continue to be so over the coming decades.
Andrew Golis, one of _TPM_’s first hires, has a mini-appreciation that highlights some of the site’s influences.
