So the Liberal Media Doesn't Work

By Keith R. Schmitz

Yesterday I alluded that somehow people are going to have to figure out how to make on-line media for news pay off (though Jay did take us all out to dinner one night on this site's revenues).

Looks like someone has according to The Nieman Journalism Lab:
When people talk about aggregator models for news, they always bring up Drudge, Huffington Post, and The Daily Beast. But I wonder why more attention doesn’t get paid to Daily Kos, which adds a strong editorial voice, an affection for activism, and a huge and involved community to the typical aggregation model. And Daily Kos seems to have more of a news-y feel than it used to — something I suspect will continue past Jan. 20. Their newish Congress Matters site is stuffed full of news. Founder Markos Moulitsas Zúniga just announced 2008 revenues “easily broke $1 million” and allowed the site to have a paid staff of eight.
