Another journalism sign of the times…
Laid-off Seattle Post-Intelligencer journalists today launched a nonprofit online news site, Seattlepostglobe.org.
Former P-I reporter Kery Murakami — "I guess I'm the publisher" — said he and a half-dozen other former P-I journalists form the core staff, but more than 20 other reporters, photographers and editors have said they intend to contribute.
Part of the new site's purpose is to give former P-I journalists both hope and an outlet, Murakami said. "We want them to know that it's not over, that you can still write for us, even if you have to get a job at Wal-Mart," he said.
