Quality Journalism Isn’t Free

As we’ve learned in recent years, quality journalism isn’t free. It requires money and resources and commitment to get the job done. So with that in mind, I’ve spoken to the business professionals who run TPM and they’ve agreed to offer a bounty for bona fide, publishable and exclusive photos of the pilates class Bloomberg News mascot Mark Halperin will host for GOP donors tomorrow morning with Ann Romney.

We had originally planned on offering a bounty of $500 for eligible photos. But the thinking here was that that’s somehow not legitimate or unseemly – especially since the possible recipients are likely to have net worths of hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars. So we’ve compromised on a $500 credit toward official TPM merchandise, which you can find here at the official TPM store. So for instance, you could buy 27 TPM mugs, 18 TPM t-shirts, etc. or various combinations.
