the night ridder isn't mainstream media! But I will agree that MSM/other major media are the ones that have major resources for investigative reporting, for the most part. Although sites like Talking Points Memo are starting to get money/resources to run investigative pieces.
I need to find a REAL Investigative Journalist that is a bulldog to help me write an article about my family's court case against the federal government. Can you provide the names of some great reporters?
