Independent journalists putting in long hours to serve as watchdogs for our government can have long-lasting ramifications, just look at the impact Woodward and Bernstein made with their Watergate investigations.

Guest:

  • James Hamilton, Hearst professor of communications at Stanford University and author, Democracy’s Detectives: The economics of investigative journalism
