How Robert Wone’s Murder Became an Exercise In New Media

The Washington Post‘s two-part comprehensive investigative story into the 2006 murder of Robert Wone was not published in the print version of the paper. Hooray for online media? Or just another way to shaft people still getting information from newsprint?
