More than Storytelling: Time's Best Blogs of 2009

Top Blogs
TIME makes its second annual list of the best blogs in the world, spanning politics, housekeeping, astronomy and everything in between . Here is the complete list of 2009 Blogs.

Talking Points Memo
Journalist Josh Marshall began publishing Talking Points Memo in
November 2000, during the Florida recount. More than eight years later, the winner of the recount is clearing brush in Texas, while Talking Points has become the prototype of what a successful Web-based news organization is likely to be in the future. Last February, Marshall's blog won a George Polk Award for its coverage of the firing of eight United States attorneys, the first blog ever to win a major journalism award. Talking Points makes good use of crowdsourcing, soliciting news tips from readers and even giving them assignments to sift through government documents. The biggest difference between Talking Points and most traditional news organizations is that Marshall assumes some of his readers might actually know more than he does, which makes him very smart indeed.
