“Investigative reporting isn’t going to away . . . what’s really endanger is the availability of information in the public interest that people wouldn’t necessarily want to know, or know to know. It’s information that maybe, they need to know.”
This is a discussion from Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. While the entire thing is good, I would suggest watching it on Fora’s site because then you can skip around. The bits that are most inline with what we’ve been looking at are section 3 (where I got the quote), section 9 (on investigative reporting), and sections 12 and 16 (on moving to the web).
After watching this, what do you think? Is investigative reporting going to continue to exist and if so, will it be readily available?
