Why not occupy newsrooms?: David Carr
New York Times journalist David Carr has a question for us: Why not occupy newsrooms? If bonuses are out of control on Wall Street, he writes, they're certainly off the charts for most mega media companies.

So, lucrative packages won’t cut it.

We won't spoil the rest of the article, though. You'll want to read it yourself.
