Investigative reporting is coming back to television newsrooms. An article from BuffaloNews.com talks about the rise and fall of investigative reporting and the possibility of it coming back to mainstream news reporting.
While investigative reporting in network television has been some of the best in the craft, really good investigative journalism has been rare at local TV stations. (There are exceptions, and Craig Cheatham on KMOV-TV in St. Louis is one of the best.) Television journalists around the country are using social media to communicate with viewers about investigative reports, sometimes live during the newscast.
