The Internet's Growing Political Influence



There is wonderful news today about Glenn Greenwald, which also represents yet another sign of the growing, persuasive influence of writers on the internet. On the same day of the announcement that Andrew Sullivan's blog had reached over 2,000,000 readers during May, it was reported that Greenwald's book, How Would a Patriot Act, has just made the New York Times' Best-Seller List. In addition, sales of his book is now within the Top-100 of all books sold by Amazon.com. Greenwald is a writer who has mainly reached a readership through his blog, Unclaimed Territory.

Background notes describe Greenwald as a constitutional law attorney and widely-read political blogger. He has written for American Conservative Magazine and appeared on a variety of television and radio programs, including C-Span's Washington Journal, Air America's Majority Report and Public Radio International's To the Point. His reporting and analysis have been credited in The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, Salon, Slate and a variety of other print and online publications.
