Is There A Need For A Dedicated Journalism Outfit To 'Follow Up' On News?

While I find the discussion interesting, I have to admit that I'm not convinced of the premise. After all, there are plenty of news stories that live on for a while, if the "follow up" events are considered newsworthy. And certainly, on niche topics, there are plenty of dedicated folks who follow those stories all the time. So an organization that just does follow through doesn't necessarily make sense, because the problem isn't necessarily the lack of follow-up, but the lack of newsworthy information to come out of such follow-ups.
