Corbis
Beginning in 1989, Gates has amassed the world’s largest digital photo archive by purchasing the venerable Bettmann Collection and the digital rights to images from Ansel Adams, Russia’s Hermitage museum, and hundreds of other suppliers. Now he’s got more than 20 million images, and they’re available online—for a fat fee. Corbis also produces Trip, a travel image gallery viewable only with Internet Explorer.

IT'S TIME TO TALK ABOUT MEDIA BIAS

We believe that journalism needs to stand for something right now. That the press is the enemy of secrecy and corruption. That reporting without a sense of right and wrong only helps liars and propagandists succeed. And that we're in this fight for the long haul.

So we're hoping to raise $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall. Read our argument for journalism that is fair and accurate and stands for something—and join us with a tax-deductible monthly donation (or make a one-time gift) if you agree.
