The Rise of Private News

Freeland, Chrystia
July 2010
Columbia Journalism Review;Jul/Aug2010, Vol. 49 Issue 2, p36
The article discusses moves toward offering free online content by media organizations that specialize in subscription-based content, such as Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters. While consumer news organizations consider doing the opposite--charging for access to some of their content--professional electronic information firms are looking into the benefits of the wider public exposure that would come from offering free consumer content. Other examples of the public/private balance are discussed in reference to the "Financial Times" newspaper and the work of political analyst Charlie Cook.
