Pledge You, Pledge Me

The bad news for traditional media is seemingly unending. From The Christian Science Monitor to TIME Inc. to ABC News to Radar magazine. In fact, when Radar folded last week, reporter Ana Marie Cox found herself with credentials to cover the McCain campaign, but no funding. Instead of giving up her seat on the press bus, she went all public radio on the problem and launched a pledge drive. From a Palin press van, Cox says the pledges poured forth.

So Anna Marie Cox is having operating funds difficulty to pay campaign coverage expenses resorting to pledge requests that include incentives. I am surprised that her old friend Jessica Cutler hasn’t offered her talents at the peak pledge level. Proven to generate revenue.

I feel bad for Anna. But if you're reading this, Anna, hold your head up! At least you're still on the bus instead of getting tossed out the back for a hard news journalist from, say.... Essence or Jet.
