Talking Points Memo

Has been my basic news source for four years because I'm a political junkie. Here's an hour's worth of Josh Marshall, its founder and publisher and a man I have greatly admired (and sometimes done minor battle with via email, he answers personally) for his journalism.
Unfortunately, the interview is Brian Lamb of C-SPAN, who is a good interviewer only because he injects so little of himself into the work. On the other hand, he's a snooze and seems like kind of a dolt. Does he ever smile? I wouldn't call it a smile, some descriptive phrase containing the word rictus comes to mind.
