Charity Donates $100 Million To Boost Journalism and Fight Hate Speech

The Charity is called Omidyar Network, and it was established by e-Bay founder Pierre Omidyar. Details are here.

At a time when real journalism is more needed than ever, and the monetary realities of running news organizations are forcing cutbacks, this money is greatly appreciated.

Note that it was awarded to journalists, not Fox News (which suggested last night that there should no more investigation of Russia...despite the news that the FBI said they were creating a special unit to further investigate) or Breitbart (which I won't honor by putting the word "news" after their name). If those are your news sources, you are not consuming actual news.
