DailyKos founder Markos Moulitsas Zuniga

The San Francisco Chronicle profiles the man behind DailyKos, the Internet’s most popular liberal blog. He says the blog has earned him $80,000 a year—plus a book contract.


San Francisco Chronicle:

Three years ago, 50 friends and family members were the only ones reading Markos Moulitsas Zuniga’s liberal blog www.dailykos.com. Now that 600,000 politics junkies are alighting daily on what’s become the nation’s most popular political blog, the inevitable is happening.

The Berkeley resident says he’s “getting flacked to death”—solicited by political consultants who know that a blessing on Daily Kos can bring their candidate as much as $50,000 in online donations within days, plus street credibility among its opinionated activists. Moulitsas can expect more suitors in the next few weeks as the book he has co-authored, “Crashing the Gate,” introduces the boyish, fast-talking 34-year-old to mainstream audiences.
