Media Shift, PBS and money from the Knight Foundation help launch a new idea incubator at MediaShift Idea Lab.
The site looks like it will be a great place for examining how to support and find quality, objective journalism online. Its focus is on the process and the questions -- other newly announced sites like ProPublica and The Center for Independent Media say they'll provide the journalism. Almost all of the new ventures have some form of foundation money, except for a new private effort, MinnPost, in Minneapolis.
It feels as if we're entering a new stage. Hold on tight.
