Around The Blogosphere 07 June 2010

Helen Thomas Retires - Words are powerful!

Nonprofit investigative reporting outfit ProPublica today announced that it has hired two reporters and a blogger to bring its total news-staff tally up to 32 full-time journalists. That BLOGGER is none other than Marian Wang, whose work as a blogger is now memorialized for all eternity in Wikipedia--but you never know, she could have written that herself. Marian can be reached on Twitter 24/7. Wang actually began her position as ProPublica's first reporter-blogger back on March 1st. She previously worked for Mother Jones, where she spearheaded the magazine's social media strategy, and she worked in Chicago as a freelance investigative reporter and blogger for The Chicago Reporter, Chi-Town Daily News, and ChicagoNow. "Marian has added value to ProPublica by keeping a sharp eye on investigative news reports, adding context and following up," said Senior Editor Eric Umansky. "She's been a great addition to the staff."

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
