Kudos for Kos — and the netroots
On June 22, the Drum Major Institute for Public Policy, a progressive think tank, will present young blogger and author Markos Moulitsas with the Drum Major for Justice Award in New York City. Kos is a pioneer of progressive blogging, and with his blog, Daily Kos, has built a network of committed, progressive activists who are speaking out for American principles of government, activism and democracy.
Marcos Moulitsas Zuniga is co-author with Jerome Armstrong of the book, “Crashing the Gate: Netroots, Grassroots and the Rise of People Powered Politics.”
I cannot think of a more deserving recipient.
