Financing, Crowd-Sourcing & The Future of Investigative Journalism
Jan Klimkowski Wrote:Ed - thanks for posting.

The sad reality is that investigative journalism does not pay a living wage. It does not put food on the table or pay for a bed to sleep in.

Investigative journalists either need patronage - with all the risks that such a relationship implies.

Or a non-journalistic job which pays the unavoidable bills whilst leaving enough time and energy for the investigative journalist to crack the story.

It's not a healthy situation.

Amen to that sad reality Jan.

Been there, done that, couldn't affordthe t-shirt but ate the baked beans instead. :ciao:
The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.
Carl Jung - Aion (1951). CW 9, Part II: P.14
