Journalism exclusivity protection
I feel the quality of journalism in the current news media falls below that standard that I would like. In particular, there is insufficient focus on investigative journalism. I don't believe the poor quality of journalism reflects the lack of intelligence or hard work of the journalists, but rather the economics of providing news. Investigative journalism costs money and doesn't generate sufficient impact to circulation. I wonder whether it would be possible to protect the exclusivity of a story in law (say for about a week) such that readers would be forced to buy the particular news service, rather than picking up the story second hand from their regular news service. This would make investigative journalism more economically viable.
If you get the sense from reading this blog that I like to think, and you believe that my kind of thinking might be useful to you or your organisation, please get in touch. I offer free consultancy for startups, delivered via email and instant messaging.
This blog is a hotchpotch of my thoughts, opinions, reviews, analysis of idioms, and links to articles that I have come across on my travels.
I would like to write a comprehensive philosophy or metareligion, but I haven't got the motivation. Likewise, I would like to write a book analysing sayings, idioms, phrases, quotes etc.
