Good journalism comes at a price
- Choose amount:
This reconstruction of the sensational robbery of the Kunsthal in Rotterdam is nrc.nl’s third major multimedia longread. We are experimenting with this form because we believe that it can help us tell good journalistic stories in the best possible manner: attractively designed with excellent photography and video footage, and with background information to lend the story context without interrupting the reading process.
At the same time, substantial investment is required to produce something like this. The writer spent months researching the story and travelled to Romania twice. The design, the photography and the English translation all cost money.
We believe that this kind of journalism has a future, but it needs a sound economic basis. We are sure our readers understand this, and to prove it we are asking you to contribute – voluntarily – an amount of your choosing to read this story.
Do you agree that good journalism should have a price? If you do, please donate an amount of your choice and help show that distinctive online journalism has the right to exist. By payment of 3 euros or more, you will receive a complimentary e-book of this reconstruction.
