What does the frame of journalism as a public good mean for where quality journalism can and should come from in the 21st century? Who will produce public service and local news? What are some potential funding mechanisms? How can we—as scholars, practitioners, and media policy reform advocates—build fertile ground for this journalism? How can we generate public interest and encourage meaningful public participation in these media reform initiatives?
