actually I guess you could say now journalism is more a balance between doing journalism and generating income streams

especially for journalism that seems like a much more relevant way to put it than "career"

I assume there's some kind of Patreon for journalism? not everything can be funded by Jeff Bezos etc

I took Jim to a Janine di Giovanni lecture in the Hay Festival in 2016. He found it really disturbing.
