Of course, what Gizmodo did was an example of investigative journalism at work. Mainstream journals and broadcasters sometimes pay for stories, leads, video and audio recordings, photographs.

That he’s one of the best writers in journalism adds weight to his judgement.

This may be the year where newspapers finally drop the idea of treating all news as a product, and all readers as customers. Taken together, these events are a blow to the idea that online news can be treated as a simple product for sale, as the physical newspaper was. The easy part of treating digital news as a product is getting money from 2% of your audience. There has never been a mass market for good journalism in this country. Clay Shirky.
