What’s new in the news business?  Money, apparently.  And not just any money – venture capital money. The kind of money that typically chases high-growth start-ups with the potential to scale massively.

That’s certainly not the way most new journalism projects are described.  But the money is coming in, nonetheless.  As Quartz noted in a piece a couple of months ago, BuzzFeed has $46 million in funding, Vox Media $80 million, and Business Insider about $30 million.
