Majikthise on a new news model

This is an interesting idea.  Admittedly, it leaves a lot of questions unanswered, and the existing peer review process for scientific grants isn’t as good as they make it sound, but it does a good job responding to the criticms leveled at some of the other ‘how do we fund journalism’ proposals I’ve seen:

So, what’s the solution? I would argue that journalism should look to science for a public funding model that preserves independence and accountability and puts small and large institutions on a more equitable footing. A great deal of federal science funding is allocated through anonymous peer-reviewed grants.

Any journalists or scientists out there want to weigh in?
