Hmmmm, here’s an interesting idea: set up a centre for investigative journalism, get a charity to fund it, then start digging. Typicallyl, investigative is tough, and expensive, to do. You might take a reporter off the job for three to four months, if not longer, while he/she digs behind the scenes. And you’re not sure if you’re going to get a story at the end of it. Might be an interesting model for North America.
