GIVE ME THE MONEY, STEINMANS!
Am I the perfect person for a Steinman grant or what? Investigative and public interest journalism are my jam! And media literacy – I’m on it! The only problem might be “local,” but I write about Lancaster, I’m not far away and I’ll get a Lancaster Post Office Box.
I will send in my application and keep you informed. Hey, does anyone know where I can find an application?
IS THIS A SCAM?
From the front page of today’s LNP print edition (click here for the story online).
What the hell is this? The Steinmans are going to give grants to their “competition?” They have no competition and they have worked very hard to keep it that way. There is no website for the “Lancaster County Local Journalism Fund.” Who are these “prominent journalists and community leaders?” Why doesn’t LNP “reporter” Jeff Hawkes tell us? What kind of scam is this?
