Media Musings Blog Archive Can philanthropy save journalism The site has copped months of unfavourable coverage since it went live earlier this year.
Most of the criticism targeted at the site focused on its unconventional sideways scrolling and slow output of fresh content. The unfriendly scrolling was a particular bane for readers, and turned many away from the site. I know I closed my browser window in frustration many times after unsuccessfully trying to read a sentence hidden behind a scroll bar. And don even get me started on browsing the site on an iPhone. Although the Global Mail is the first philanthropically funded independent news website to be launched in Australia (independent site New Matilda is similar, but funded by its readers as opposed to one benefactor), it is part of a growing world wide trend towards journalism more specifically, investigative journalism becoming increasingly funded by philanthropists with cash to splash. Journalism is the new charity it seems. Some may argue that philanthropists have no place in the world of journalism, sticking their dirty fingers where they shouldn't. Business people have no idea how journalism works, they say. It true, journalism is more than just a new business model to play with and throw away when the profits start declining. There too much at stake. But investigative journalism is expensive, and traditional media can't afford it anymore. Who else is going to uncover the bungling of allegations of bribery within the Reserve Bank of Australia, laNick McKenzie and Richard Baker? Admittedly, these two are well ensconced at The Age, with The Age unlikely to cut off their expense accounts any time soon. But they are representative of the idea that investigative journalists are extremely valuable in our society. I think this is a welcome change for the ailing media industry. US site ProPublica is a shining light in the world of philanthropic journalism, but unfortunately, it has had to take on advertisers in order for the site to remain viable. wei?, dass Sie totheir unmittelbaren Situation. ray ban Only nike air max six, michael kors bags factory outlet however, air max 2015 sat Oakeyley Sunglasses Wholesale down Cheap Ray Bans to buy oakley sunglasses 2015 dinner. Air Jordan 4 Retro Burned Louis Vuitton neverfull bags arsenic, Ray Bans For Cheap beyond Wholesale Christian Louboutin a Ray Ban Outlet Store doubt, Ralph Lauren UK Online Store said oakley outlet Monsieur ray ban Fergant. Young Monsieur Beauguillot obligingly ran off (it was apparently a very mild case of poisoning, so far as he was concerned) to the apothecary s shop, and fetched, not the apprentice this time, but the master. The master, Monsieur Thierry, arrived in great haste, and found the dinner eaters all complaining of nausea and pains in the stomach. He naturally asked what they had eaten. The reply was, that they had eaten nothing but soup. This was, to say the least of it, rather an unaccountable answer. The company had had for dinner, besides soup, a second course of boiled meat, and ragout of beef, and a dessert of cherries. Why was this plain fact concealed? Why was the apothecary s attention to be fixed exclusively on the soup? Was it because the tureen was empty, and because the alleged smell of burned arsenic might be accounted for on the theory that the remains of the soup brought from the dining room had been thrown on the kitchen fire? But no remains of soup came down it had been all consumed by the guests. And what is still more remarkable, the only person in the kitchen (excepting Marie and the nurse) who could not discover the smell of burned arsenic, was the person of all others who was professionally qualified to find it out first the apothecary himself. After examining the tureen and the plates, and stirring up the wood ashes on the fire, and making no sort of discovery, Monsieur Thierry turned to Marie, and asked if she could account for what had happened. She simply replied that she knew nothing at all about it; and thereupon her mistress and the rest of the persons present all overwhelmed her together with a perfect torrent of questions. The poor girl, terrified by the hubbub, worn out by a sleepless night and by the hard work and agitation of the day preceding it, burst into an hysterical fit of tears, and was ordered out of the kitchen to lie down and recover herself. The only person who showed her the least pity and offered her the slightest attention, was a burberry official online store servant girl like herself, who lived next door, and who stole up to the room in which she was weeping alone, with a cup of warm milk and water to comfort her. Meanwhile the report had spread in the town that the old man, Monsieur De Beaulieu, and the whole Duparc family had been poisoned by their servant. Madame Duparc did her best to give the rumor the widest possible circulation. Entirely forgetting, as it would seem, that she was on her own showing a poisoned woman, she roamed excitably all over the house with an audience of agitated female friends at her heels; telling the burned arsenic story over and over again to every fresh detachment of visitors that arrived to hear it; and finally leading the whole troop of women into the room where Marie was trying to recover herself. The poor girl was surrounded in a moment; angry faces and shrill voices met her on every side; the most insolent questions, the most extravagant accusations, assailed her; and not one word that she could say in her own defense was listened to for an instant. She had sprung up in the bed, on her knees, and was frantically entreating for permission to speak in her own defense, when a new personage appeared on the scene, and stilled the clamor by his presence. This individual was a surgeon named H bert, a friend of Madame Duparc s, who announced that he had arrived to give the family the benefit of his assistance, and who proposed to commence operations by searching burberry scarf discount the servant s pockets without further delay. The instant Marie heard him make this proposal she untied her pockets, and gave them to Surgeon H bert with her own hands. He examined them on the spot. In one he found some copper money and a thimble. In the other (to use his own words, given in evidence) he discovered various fragments of bread, sprinkled over with some minute substance which was white and shining. He kept the fragments of bread, and left the room immediately without saying a word. By this course of proceeding he gave Marie no chance of stating at the outset whether she knew of the fragments of bread being in her pocket, or whether she was totally ignorant how they came there. Setting aside, for the present, the question, whether there was really any arsenic on the crumbs at all, it would clearly have been showing the unfortunate maid of all work no more than common justice to have allowed her the opportunity of speaking before the bread was carried away. It was now seven o clock in the evening. The next event was the arrival of another officious visitor. The new friend in need belonged to the legal profession he was an advocate named Friley. Monsieur Friley s legal instincts led him straightway to a conclusion which seriously advanced the progress of events. Having heard the statement of Madame Duparc and her daughter, he decided that it was his duty to lodge an information against Marie oakley sunglasses sale shop before the Procurator of the king, at Caen.
