Follow The Money

Follow the money. It’s an axiom that journalists have believed in for years and a guiding light when it comes to holding the powerful to account. But that phrase is increasingly pertinent to those who run media businesses.

Erin McKenzie dives into the local news media feed and finds plenty of experiments, but no simple answer to the funding conundrum.
