Online Only Investigative Reporting Group Wins Investigative Reporting Award

from the who-says-you-can't-do-investigative-reporting-online dept

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.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team
