More cash announced today for MinnPost, voiceofsandiego.org, Chi-town Daily News and St. Louis Beacon. That's a good thing, even for those of us deep inside the MSM.
Experimenting with local-news models is a necessary step, and these guys are at the front end of it. So watch and learn. I assume Portland will have one or more outfits like these guys before long.
We ignore them at our peril.
