The worth of investigative journalism

Brant Houston, the executive director of Investigative Reporters and Editors, wrote a piece which ran in yesterday's The Dallas Morning News praising the efforts of investigative journalists, whose work he believes is needed by newspapers now more than ever. In fact, Houston refers to investigative reporting as "the beleaguered newspaper industry's best franchise for the future."

The 2006 IRE annual conference, held this year in Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, concluded yesterday.

Thanks to Romenesko.
