The Future of White Collar Crime Press Investigations - Bleak

With the final edition of the Rocky Mountain News (see here), with newspapers across the U.S. closing (see here for an map that tracks the newspaper layoffs), one has to wonder about the future of white collar investigations that originate from the press.  Press investigations and exposure of corruption have lead to prosecutions.  It is frightening to see the dying press, not only because of what this means to having a well informed public, but also from the perspective of having white collar criminality exposed.

At least we will still have plaintiffs lawyers and the government to investigate private abuses. How will be bring light to government wrongdoing without the press? That to me seems the greater danger.

The Press has long given up on White Collar criminal investigations. Having less desire to hear about them - than the DOJ desires to investigate.

Unless it is harming "You" directly, everyone remains apathetic to the issues - in the inane belief that it does not affect "me".

The entire reason we have the current economic crisis is greatly due to willful blindness and apathy concerning "Organized" White Collar crime.

The reason the schemes reached such hieghts is greatly due to no keepers of the gate - that includeds both the authorities and the press.

The Press has so inethitized the public to average joe stories - unless it is mutli billion dollar debacles or guts/gore - it is not deemed news worthy.

The end result is less involved public, less involved federal authoritative action and therefore less stories.

Hence - Less Press!
