“Ode to a Daring Team”

Screen Shot 2014-05-11 at 9.59.09 PM“As storytelling, Busted succeeds on two levels: its stated purpose, in showing the challenges of finding and telling these stories of police corruption, and in the backstory — performing this difficult work at a newspaper, and in an industry, that is crumbling before our eyes. More than dropped investigations, that’s the postscript to this story that I find so disheartening. As difficult as it was in a shrinking newsroom to perform this work, imagine doing it today, just five years later. Or next year. Or 10 years from now.” Thanks so much, Mark.
