The (nonprofit) future of news

Michael Massing has a terrific piece on the future of news in the New York Review of Books. (Thanks to Scott Esposito for pointing this one out).

The news business is in serious trouble these days, but Massing’s take is more optimistic than most. The reason? He (correctly, I think) identifies nonprofit business models (such as that of the Twin Cities’ own MinnPost) as the industry’s best hope going forward. Massing (a contributing editor for the Columbia Journalism Review) also talks about the phenomenal continued success of NPR, and points out the wisdom of their recent efforts to ramp up the depth and quality of their original local reporting.
