Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas returned to his law-school alma mater on Oct. 17, 2007, to give a keynote address at a day-long seminar on new-media law and blogging. Introduced by the school's dean, Maureen O'Rourke. In the 36-minute talk and Q&A, Moulitsas recounted his surprise rise to Internet prominence, and described his view of why Daily Kos is an example of new media, which he said was made possible by a "dramatic failure" of the mainstream media, citing comments by CBS Evening News host Katie Couric during a September appearance at the National Press Club on The Kalb Report.
