  • Journalism more abundant than ever
    More sources of news and a wider range of opinion are available to readers than ever before, although the problem of making a living while providing that content is essentially unsolved, writes Matthew Yglesias. He argues that Pew Research Center's most recent State of the Media report adopts a tone that is far too dark. "It's a blinkered outlook that confuses the interests of producers with those of consumers, confuses inputs with outputs, and neglects the single most important driver of human welfare -- productivity," Yglesias writes.
