The Future of Investigative Journalism

As traditional news organizations drown in red ink, how can we sustain the critical work of investigative reporting?  There are some promising new models, including ProPublica, but will the future rely on private philanthropy?  What are the roles of private and public media in this work?  What new business models are evolving?  Where does the game changing Wikileaks fit in this landscape?  What about social media?  A conversation about the future of investigative reporting with:
