Few journalists have caused the resignation of a member of the president's cabinet; fewer still have done so by blogging. Josh Marshall and colleagues at the Talking Points Memo/TPM Muckraker blogs won this year's Polk Award in legal reporting for their relentless coverage of the politically motivated firings of U.S. attorneys by the White House. The coverage by TPM and others led to Congressional hearings and the ultimate resignation of attorney general Alberto Gonzales.

Marshall will speak at Ithaca College on Tuesday, September 16, at 7:30 p.m. in Emerson Suites on the importance of independent media in this era of technological change and crisis in the mainstream media. He is keynoting the first symposium of the Park Center for Independent Media -- convening independent media leaders and experts to campus from across the country.
