AAN Executive Director's Letter to Editor & Publisher

november 18, 2005  11:15 am
Richard Karpel's response to a column questioning the future of investigative journalism was posted today in the Letters section of Editor & Publisher's Web site. Karpel cited examples of recent investigative work by alt-weeklies and concluded, "Readers of dailies who can no longer find the investigative reporting they crave don't need to wait for NPR or Yahoo! to fund in-depth reporting. They can turn to the pages of their local alternative weeklies."
