Newmark: His New Project Will Save News Jobs

Craigslist founded Craig Newmark responds to media reports that he will be launching his new citizen journalism site in less than three months, by writing:

It’s intended to complement, preserve, and grow existing media.

He adds:

I’m working with some folks on technologies that promise to help people find the most trusted versions of the more important stories… and this is personal, helping out another group not associated with craigslist. This kind of technology is intended to preserve the best of existing journalistic practices, and should help retain newsroom jobs.
