Investigative Journalism: the Future's Digital

Aron Pilhofer and Francesca Panetta explain why digital doesn't mean the death of investigative and long form journalism.

At 17,000 words, "Snow Fall" was a success with awards committees, sure. But more importantly, it was a huge success with readers. The same is true of the Guardian's recent "Firestorm" project.
