The Lost Art Of Muckraking

From sinking ships to pedophile priests, stories uncovered by investigative reporters have served as catalysts for change. Steve Weinberg, a former executive director of Investigative Reporters & Editors, reviews two new books, Robert Frump's Until the Sea Shall Free Them and William and Judith Serrin's Muckraking! The Journalism that Changed America, which show how crusading journalists have been able to bring about beneficial social change by searching beyond the spin to expose corruption.
