Are You Paying For Journalism? Why Not?
Vigorous journalism is essential to true democracy, but the rise of the Internet and the related assumption that no one has to pay for journalism is undermining news organizations the world over, as I report in this Nation piece about mass lay-offs at The Guardian: https://www.thenation.com/article/even-the-guardian-needs-its-readers-to-pay-for-journalism/. If you care about democracy and the informed public it requires, please do your part. We journalists don’t ask for much, but we do need a living wage.
