Jack Shafer Hates The Newseum

From Slate:

    Of all the slow-moving targets that bleed profusely when you hit them, can there be a fatter, slower, juicier bull’s-eye to sight your scope on than the $450 million Newseum, the four-years-in-the-building, seven-story, steel-and-glass monument to journalistic vanity just a nine iron away from Washington, D.C.’s National Mall? …

    Avoid the gilded disaster that is the Newseum. Avoid paying the $20 they charge for admission. I want the Freedom Forum to sell off their monument valley installation and use the proceeds to actually support journalism. Like endowing a newspaper, for instance.
