Steiger Sticks Up For Nonprofit Model

After taking home a shared Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting today, ProPublica editor-in-chief Paul Steiger told Joe Strupp that the award indicates that the nonprofit model works and has a future.

Here's what he told Joe:

To have a reporter get an award in investigative and another a finalist in Public Service, those are at the top of the list of categories for the kind of work we do. It suggests that our non-partisan, non-profit model can serve a role in this time of expanding change in the media.
I've criticized Steiger in the past for not talking about the merits of the nonprofit model, so I'm glad to see that this is part of his honoree stump speech.
