The Non-profit way, anyone?

Earlier, I wrote about why Google should buy NYT. Now I hope someone buys the ‘paper of record’ turning into a non-profit.

Who better than big-spender, ‘do no evil’ Google?

About the rumors of Google wanting to buy Dow Jones, John Battelle suggests that Google should buy Dow Jones and convert it into a non-profit.

Media brands cruising along the non-profit route include heavy hitters such as BBC, Guardian, Christian Science Monitor, PBS, NPR.

As for India, I wish the government really got out of way of Prasar Bharati, making it fully autonomous like BBC, putting a regulator like Ofcom in place.

You make a good point about keeping quality journalism free, un-troubled by demands of capitalism.
