On Bob Greene

I almost wrote a posting about the death of Newsweek investigative journalist Bob Greene the other day. When I read he'd died I remembered his speaking at the first IRE conference I went to and how impressed I was with it. In particular, I was struck at his description of an online repository of reporters' notes his investigative team maintained. Why wasn't everyone doing that?

Today I'm just posting a link to Mark Schaver's post on Greene, Investigative reporting enters the era of chopped meat. Pretty much says it all, I'd say....
