To Do: Skip Newseum Opening
Why you should boycott journalism's monument to itself.
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.
Or how about repurposing the Newseum as a parking structure for the Lamborghini set? Send your recommendations to email@example.com.
