HuffPost's new journalism venture
The Huffington Post announced some exciting news Sunday for both experienced journalists and young journalism majors. The online blog will soon sponsor an investigative journalism venture with an initial budget of $1.75 million! With the fate of newspapers threatening to shrink investigative projects, the HuffPost seized the opportunity to help save the watchdog function of the press. The money will staff 10 journalists.
