  1. Just came across this on Facebook. Seems like an interesting idea.

    Nice idea, except no one know how to pay for it.

    I feel that they're going to get a bunch of anonymous cowards saying stuff like "Rot in hell you pieces of shit" over and over again.

    At least, that's what message boards have taught me.

    I doubt that the next business model of daily news gathering will support 250 staffers making $60K-$80K, with full benefits and union protection. The stuff about civic duty and doing God's work is just to separate some rich Twin Cities locals from their wallets.

    It could be a situation like St. Petersburg, FL where a non-profit corporation/foundation could be formed. It probably wouldn't be that different from a lot of opera companies or classical music organizations - although a lot of them are having trouble.
