Salt Lake City, Utah – In the world of investigative reporting, the goal is to seek out the truth of a story - to set the record straight. But in the new media landscape where newspapers are folding and journalists are being laid off - who's willing to do that hard work for free? Writer and journalist Mark Bowden says it's increasingly being done by political operatives and ideologues. Bowden joins Doug to talk about their "post-journalistic" approach, and how it's shaping the national debate. (Rebroadcast)

Read Mark Bowden's article The Story Behind the Story in the October issue of The Atlantic Monthly
