The State Of Investigative Journalism With Veteran Reporter Chuck Lewis

Dec 31, 2015

Note: This is a rebroadcast from earlier this year.

Chuck Lewis has had a long career as an investigative journalist. He has worked for national news shows, including CBS News' "60 Minutes," and he helped to create the Center for Public Integrity. 

But in the decades since he started digging for the truth, the reporting industry has suffered a serious decline in investigative reporting.

Fewer news outlets are spending the time and money for investigations in favor of daily news blurbs, breaking news coverage, or entertainment.

Host Frank Stasio talks with Chuck Lewis, now a journalism professor at American University, about the state of investigative reporting.
