Is it right for @RapplerDotCom to be soliciting donations to fund its war coverage?


There's something not quite right about an established mainstream news site like Rappler soliciting donations to fund coverage of war zones. But here is rapplerite Carmela Fonbuena doing just that...



Is this right? Or at least in good form for a large media organisation like Rappler?

For that matter, why do they even feel entitled to be funded by their own readership? Perhaps this goes with being regarded (or regarding themselves) as "God's Gift to Philippine Journalism" and their reportage as some sort of Mission from God.
