“I have often wondered why we need the phrase investigative journalism. Isn’t all journalism supposed to be investigative? Isn’t journalism without an investigative element little more than gossip? And isn’t there enough gossip around already?”
—Errol Morris, filmmaker (Thin Blue Line, Fog of War…), author and New York Times blogger (“The Opinionator”), from a 2010 commencement address to the Berkeley School of Journalism
