NPR, PBS Put Millions Into Investigative Reporting
From a new AP report on one of the few “sunny” stories about always expensive, but exceptionally vital investigative reporting.  In a sad irony, however, this link to the AP story will take you to the Huffington Post who ought to be putting more of its big bucks into paying writers and reporters, investigative and otherwise.  But I digress…
"NPR, PBS and local public broadcast stations around the country are  hiring more journalists and pumping millions of dollars into  investigative news to make up for what they see as a lack of  deep-digging coverage by their for-profit counterparts.
…
'Where the marketplace is unable to serve, that's the role  of public media,' PBS President and CEO Paula Kerger said last year at a  summit on the future of media at the Federal Communications Commission. 'PBS exists to serve the people, not to sell them.'”
