Investigative reporting is something most newspapers pride themselves on. It has a long tradition, extending well beyond Watergate, dating back to the turn of the century, when the reporters who exposed the seamier side of things were called muckrakers.
Here at The Bond Buyer, we've been known to practice it, but only on rare occasions. There have been comparatively few times in the newspaper's 100-year history when it covered itself with journalistic glory of the investigative reporting variety. I blame the Travis case.
