Leave A Voice Mail. We'll Call Back.

Former Washington Post executive editor Leonard Downie Jr. wonders if the media Zeitgeist and newspapers' dwindling resources will prevent a future Woodward and Bernstein from uncovering a future Watergate:
As newsrooms rapidly shrink, will they still have the resources, steadily amassed by newspapers since Watergate, for investigative reporting that takes months and even years of sustained work.

No worries. If a powerful federal official wants to dish government secrets illegally to get back at his boss, I'm sure he'll still be able to find someone to take the call.
