Alternative Funding for New Journalism

In this video, CUNY professor CW Anderson talks about two alternative ways to fund journalism, stressing that help can come from all different directions. His first suggestion is government funding — there’s no reason to be hesitant about it, he says, so long as monetary allocation is transparent.

The second is through foundation processes. Anderson cites the Knight Foundation, a major supporter of journalism innovation, as a good example of his vision. But private funding on a national scale is not enough — local foundations should support newsrooms and new projects in their communities and cities.
