Journalism's Role in Democracy
In this edition of We The People, we explore the art of investigative journalism and its role in democracy. Is investigative journalism on the decline? What are the economic and political interests behind this decline? Will the internet be able to replace the void left as larger news corporations reduce the resources spent in investigative reporting? To explore these questions, Joanne interviewed Ken Silverstein of Harper’s Magazine; and joining us live in the studio was Beth Slovic, reporter for the Willamette Week and independent journalist Chris Lydgate.
