Kevin: Zach Seward looks into the cost of a two-year investigation carried out by the foundation-funded investigative journalism group ProPublica and the New York Times Magazine into how patients were euthanised at a New Orleans hospital in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. "Gerald Marzorati, editor of the Times Magazine, caused a minor stir this week when he estimated that the article cost $400,000 to produce." It's an interesting post, and the comments are worth reading. As Zach says: "New economics. Indeed."
