Ok, recently we've seen an exodus of the "adult in the room" of the Washington press corp:
Dave Ammons and John Hughes to the Secretary of State's office.
Robert Mak for City of Seattle.
David Seago for retirement.
David Postman to Vulcan.
Ralph Thomas to Katz Communications Group.
Given that Ives Galarcep, a ten year veteran reporter from a mid-sized east coast newspaper, can make the successful transition from his print job to a self-sustaining niche blog.
Also, given that Crosscut has a place in Seattle media world.
Ok, so here's the question to answer:
Do you think after Postman, Ammons, Hughes, Thomas and Seago left their print jobs, and instead of going into the government and PR worlds, they started a group blog, that it would work out for them?
My answer in the comments.
