Looking for a Journalism Job on Craigslist? Try Working for Craig

12craig-span-600.jpg

Our sister site FBNY called our attention to this NYT piece about Craig Newmark, the “Craig” of Craigslist who is dismissing the accusation that he single-handedly destroyed newspapers but is — funny enough — financing investigative journalism.

In the face of this expansion, Mr. Newmark is becoming more of a public figure, capitalizing on his success to promote causes that include supporting the Barack Obama campaign and financing investigative journalism — not, he insists, to compensate for any damage Craigslist has done to the newspaper business, which he calls “an urban myth.”

Newmark has donated up to $20,000 to various journo organizations including factcheck.org, sunlightfoundation.com and publicintegrity.org. In case you’re looking. And let’s face it, you are.
