Writing Quote: Investigative Journalism is a Team Effort

It has become a cliche of our business/profession/craft that journalists are supposed to build themselves as individual "brands." But journalism--especially the hardest stuff, like investigative journalism--benefits immensely from institutional support, including a technical staff that knows how to make the most of a database, editors and fact-checkers who fortify the stories, graphic designers who help make complicated subjects comprehensible and, not least, lawyers who are steeped in freedom-of-information and First Amendment law.
