Tackling vital political topics by tracking key races, exposing corruption, and holding politicians accountable, he brings an unprecedented level of political awareness to the general public. And politicians are also listening: the site is regularly visited by congressmen, senators, governors, and other political luminaries.
With a renewed sense of purpose, and using the latest technologies, a new generation of activists has emerged. They are revitalizing the democratic process and re-engaging in political advocacy. Markos Moulitsas's live presentations are infused with the kinetic energy and political acumen of this movement, drawing listeners into a conversation about what democracy is, and how they can be a part of it.
Even if you disagree with his political stance or think his opinions are "packed with pathological cynicism," listeners will still emerge with a greater understanding of the current state of American political life and where it is going.
