CJR examines ‘Busted’

CJR logoThe Columbia Journalism Review turns its magnifying glass on “Busted” in a review by Anna Clark:

Busted is more than a stitched-together collection of their old articles. Ruderman and Laker are cast as characters in a first-person narrative that tells a story of police corruption, but also the story of modern-day reporting: their scrappy home paper, both in 2009 and today, struggles to survive, let alone invest in high-stakes journalism. The precariousness of the institution that employs them adds an alarming dimension to the story.
