Garance Franke-Ruta corrects an error in my post on journalists and market forces correctly noting that contrary to what I said The Nation isn't a non-profit. Rather, it's affiliated with the non-profit Nation Institute which lets it take advantage of many of the aspects of non-profitdom while evading the restrictions that tax rules would impose on a true non-profit. Apologies for the error, though I think the larger point about The Nation being semi-shielded from market forces still stands.
