"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."
