MacArthur Foundation Funding Participatory Journalism

The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation announced $1.4 million in funding for Link Media, Inc.and, but a key paragraph in the press release for readers is:

In recent years, tools such as podcasts, streaming video, and blogs have begun to allow unprecedented access to news and information. These new technologies encourage participatory journalism and interaction among audience members, allowing citizens to learn more actively. MacArthur’s media grantmaking reflects these developments. While MacArthur continues to support the production of high quality public radio, television, and documentary films, the Foundation also encourages the use of new media in combination with traditional programming.
