A Brief Blog Profile: Talking Points Memo
For more than 10 years, Talking Points Memo has been a leading online destination for political news. In fact, it was the first online organization to win the prestigious George Polk Award.
You may also have read about TPM on The New York Times, Columbia Journalism Review, NiemanJournalismLab, The LA Times, or TechCrunch. Or maybe you're interested in politics, in which case you've probably stumbled across TPM at some point or another. And if you are interested in politics and NOT reading TPM, it's probably time to start.
If the site looks crowded that's probably because there's a lot going on in politics. TPM wants to cover it all. To do this, the team employs a 'relentless focus on breaking news, original reporting and investigative journalism.'
We imagine being relentless is key to covering politics. Things change. Candidates misspeak. Candidates correct themselves. There's always a new poll. There's always a new battleground. There's always a new issue. It's around the clock. TPM has made a name for itself covering this beast known as American politics just about as well as anyone.
