A must read for environmental reporters Apr 30, 2007
Dr. Schwartz writes well and with experience in this work. She poses a tough question, "Is investigative reporting about the environment the same thing as environmental advocacy?" As she writes through the thoughts of several investigative reporters on the environmental beat, one is able to struggle with the often fuzzy line between unbiased journalism, ethical advocacy, and all out propaganda.
This is a must read for anyone interested in writing on the environment in any field.
