Talking Points Memo wins major journalism award

Let me be first (since the news is embargoed until now) to congratulate Josh Marshall and the gang over at the Talking Points Memo for winning one of the major journalism prizes, the George Polk Award. It's a rare, or maybe a first, blog win, where the prizes normally all go to major newspapers and TV shows and magazines. I'd also like to particularly congratulate Leila Fadel, the young Baghdad bureau chief for McClatchy, profiled by E&P last December. McClatchy has continued the tough and frank reports from Baghdad carried over from its predecessor, Knight Ridder -- with a tip of the hat to its ridiculously brave Iraqi staffers. Herre is link to the full E&P writeup on the winners.
