Online Only Investigative Reporting Group Wins Investigative Reporting Award

We still haven't quite figured out why some newspaper folks insist that you need print newspapers to do investigative reporting. A few weeks ago, we noted that there were a growing number of quite successful online only investigative reporting organizations. One of which was VoiceOfSanDiego.com -- funded by a bunch of local businesses who felt there wasn't enough local investigative reporting in San Diego. Now Nick writes in to let us know that VoiceOfSanDiego.com has won a top award in investigative reporting, the IRE or Investigative Reporters and Editors award. The award was for online investigative reporting, but it clearly wasn't limited to just online-only publications, since at least one traditional newspaper was included in the finalists.
