Democracy’s Detectives: The Economics of Investigative Journalism
Thu, March 23, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
The News & Observer and the N.C. Museum of History invite you to attend a discussion of the new book, “Democracy’s Detectives: The Economics of Investigative Journalism,” featuring Dr. James T. Hamilton of Stanford University and Pat Stith, former investigative reporter and winner of the 1996 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.
In “Democracy’s Detectives,” Hamilton chronicles investigative journalism’s real-world impact, with an in-depth case study of the work of reporter Pat Stith, who pursued more than 150 investigations that led to the passage of dozens of state laws.
Hamilton and Stith will speak and take questions about the book, with a reception to follow. Copies of “Democracy’s Detectives” will be available for purchase.
