AOL to Launch a New Political Journalism Site “That Pays Writers a Living Wage”

aol.jpg This comes to us from TheWrap:

AOL’s site will be “polypartisan” and focus initially on commentary rather than breaking news, Marty Moe, senior vice president of AOL’s MediaGlow content division, told TheWrap.

“AOL is investing in a big way in news and in old school journalism,” Melinda Henneberger said. The goal is “quality news sites that have zero aggregation, original content, that pay writers a living wage, and that pay bloggers.”

Pay. Bloggers. Pay. Writers. OMG!
