Google CEO - dismayed over lack of depth reporting

Google CEO Eric Schmidt recently said he's worried about the state of investigative reporting in this country. Here's the video that will probably bring snickers -- or worse -- from those who think Goog is a large part of the problem.

However, it's just more of the same - "we have to find a business model" to fund good journalism. How can we move beyond that to actually finding one?

(Schmidt also wasn't particularly fond of the Atlantic article "Is Google Making Us Stoopid?" He also talks about new technology to detect illegally uploaded content and then give the content creator some choices on what to do. One of those is to put a wrapper around the offending stuff telling people that if they like it, here are some other things you can do (I assume directing them to the real artist's site where some money can be made ...)
