USA TODAY’s series on school lunch quality, “Trouble on the Tray,” is included in a roundup of noteworthy investigative projects from 2009 by the non-profit investigative reporting team at California Watch. The stories were reported and written by Blake Morrison, Peter Eisler and Elizabeth Weise with data analysis by yours truly.
From the item, by Mark Katches:
Just to be clear, this is by no means a comprehensive list. It represents only a small, informal survey about stories that some highly respected investigative journalists are buzzing about.
Indeed, every year I am amazed at the quality and depth of investigative reporting that American newsrooms continue to produce even as the industry fights hard times. It’s an honor to be mentioned in that company.
