Craigslists' founder is committed to helping the newspaper industry

Jessica Dolcount for CNET:

Newmark’s dedication to journalism is another one of his seeming contradictions. He’s credited by some with single-handedly taking down the newspaper classifieds industry and strangling local papers of revenue. In February, he gave $15 million to projects that support journalism ethics at a time of deep political divide over where and how we get our information, and how trustworthy those sources may be. Newmark never uttered the term “fake news,” but he wants to fight it.

Great profile of an interesting guy.
