    Default CNN scraps Investigative Journalism unit

    ‘The Daily Show’ Investigates Investigative Journalism - TVNewser

    It was not a 'profit center' it seems, so they have closed it. Another sad step towards the death of journalism.

    If the video in the link in works in your area its worth a watch. Basically the Daily Show talk to an ex-investigative reporter who now writes fiction for TV. Who says the Americans don't understand irony.

    Saw that recently, apparently when CNN found out that The Daily Show was going to cover this, they were not amused at all, at all!

    What earth-shattering revelations did the CNN Investigative Unit bring to the attention of the world when this Unit was in existence ?

    Before one can objectively assess the impact of its demise, people should first be aware of it's achievements when it prevailed. Any we should know of ?
