The Daily Kos, founded by Markos Moulitsas Zúniga, is a liberal blog.

"The Daily Kos (rhymes with rose, based on Moulitsas' old army nickname) is far and away the most popular blog on the Internet: Kos averages over 400,000 page views a day. By comparison, the second most popular blog, right leaning law professor Glenn Reynolds's Instapundit,[1] averages barely 200,000 page views a day," Dean Barnett wrote February 2, 2005, in The Weekly Standard.[2]

FEC rules Daily Kos is media

On September 4, 2007, the Federal Election Commission "unanimously dismissed" a complaint filed July 27, 2007, against DailyKos by right-wing blogger John C.A. Bambenek of Champaign, Illinois,[3] "who had argued it was illegally acting as a political committee by giving support and free advertising to Democratic candidates." Bambenek "contributes" to the Blogcritics Blog[4] and operates the Part-Time Pundit Blog.[5][6]

Cindy Sheehan banned

Peace campaigner Cindy Sheehan has been banned from posting on The Daily Kos after she threatened to run against Democrat Nancy Pelosi for the latter's refusal to impeach President George W. Bush and cut funding for the Iraq war.[7]
