UC Berkeley Threatens Bay Area Journalism

UC Berkeley’s journalism school is teaming up with a wealthy San Francisco financier and KQED radio to create a non-profit news website, according to the New York Times. But the venture also threatens traditional news media in the Bay Area, because it will rely on 120 journalism students at Cal who will work for free. The massive free-labor workforce will give the new venture a huge advantage over established Bay Area media organizations that depend on paid, veteran journalists to gather and put together news stories.
