Granted, it’s journalism

My greatest fear with the challenges that newspapers face is the lack of
lengthy, rigorous investigative reporting. I doubt that the next
Woodward and Bernstein will be Twitter users: “OMG, R. Nixon’s flunkies
broke into Wtrgte Htl.” Somebody has to pay for this kind of reporting, and
if the public won’t, I hope foundations do.

One problem: Many foundations get their wealth from the very same people or companies that are targets of muckraking journalists.


  1. Where foundations “get their wealth” is quite irrelevant, because in most cases the influence of the founder fades very rapidly.
    The real problem is that most wealthy foundations are run by over-privileged white liberals of the sort who edit too many of newspapers already.
