Proposed: A News Corps to encourage young people to reinvent journalism

Content Bridges
“We need to attract some of the most energetic and innovative minds to this reinvention” of journalism, writes Ken Doctor. “So let’s start with a News Corps of 1000, and a starting wage of $35,000 a year, a decent start and parallel to what Teach for America provides. That’s a tab of $35 million a year, a paltry sum by many measures and one that could be funded by a consortium of foundations to keep it free of government taint.”
