      Bio

      Markos Moulitsas Zúniga (born September 11, 1971), often known by his username and former military moniker "Kos", is the founder and main author of Daily Kos, a left-wing weblog focusing on progressive, liberal, and Democratic Party politics.


      Moulitsas was born in Chicago, Illinois to a Salvadoran mother and Greek father, and grew up in El Salvador. (Following Latin American custom, his last name is actually "Moulitsas", not "Zúniga".)


      His family moved back to the United States in 1980 due to the Salvadoran civil war. He served in the U.S. Army from 1989 through 1992; during his military service he changed his political affiliation from Republican to Democrat.


      After leaving the army, he attended Northern Illinois University and wrote for, and eventually managed, the Northern Star college newspaper. He later received his Juris Doctor degree from Boston University School of Law.


      Moulitsas founded Daily Kos in May 2002, and the site quickly rose to prominence. In its first year, he received over one million unique visitors. During the United Kingdom general election in 2005, Moulitsas was hired by the British daily newspaper The Guardian to write elections analysis for their weblog. His book with Jerome Armstrong (of MyDD) titled Crashing the Gate: Grassroots, Netroots, and the Rise of People Powered Politics was released in March 2006.


      Moulitsas presently lives in Berkeley, California, where he runs Daily Kos — now the largest political weblog in the US, if not the world, averaging over 1 million weekday visits.
