Investigative reporting on new media
I never set out to be an investigative reporter.
Rather, I was interested in discovering new business models for the media, and when I started asking questions about various supposedly successful new media ventures, I found out that they were all hiding something.
I continue to be puzzled that these stories — about Geosign, DexTV and a whole slew of fake news agencies — have been pretty much ignored by the mainstream press. You would think, given the trouble the media is in, they would have been more curious about organizations that were supposedly making a go of it.
