"[T]here is another correction which is long overdue, and which should be triggered by these scandals. Unfortunately, I am afraid that the necessary correction is being overlooked by the press, since it involves their own ranks. Why is nobody asking the question, "why didn’t the press tell us about all of this fraud five years ago?" The answer is that investigative journalism is a dead art, and all that the press have left are talking heads who talk about whatever their audience is buzzing about. If you ask them why they never reported on this fraud earlier, they’ll say "because nobody told us about it until now". In other words, until everyone knows about it, the reporters aren’t going to know about it."
