NEW YORK — National Public Radio said Tuesday that it has received a $4.7 million grant that will allow it to fund investigative reporting units for regional hubs in California and the Midwest.
The money comes to NPR from a foundation set up by former Google chief executive Eric Schmidt and his wife, Wendy. It’s the largest gift NPR has received for its collaborative journalism work.
Interesting. Fake news in the US gets funded privately.
In Canada, fake news is funded by the government/taxpayer.
What a country!
