First, journalism itself was in decline. Many news outlets print and broadcast had drastically reduced staff, leaving those who remained with less time for in-depth, investigative work. Second, financial issues had become increasingly specialized and complex. Consequently, journalists became increasingly dependent on their sources--contacts on Wall Street and in the government--for information and explanations, but many of these sources had their own points of view, including a common interest in maintaining public confidence.
