Their "investigative reporting" is "top-notch"????

There's "who, what, when, where, and why" basic questions in journalism. I have to ask "why" the so-called investigative reporters at Lancaster's WGAL-TV avoided answering the basic "who" question on a local important topic. 

They report the state and City of Harrisburg have filed a suit against "a number of companies" over the botched rebuilding and the botched building a new incinerator plant. 

The station NEVER mentioned who the subjects of the suit are. If the suit was filed, then the defendants are public record. What kind of intelligent and responsible journalism is this? Has the news really gotten this bad? 

And they advertise they have the best investigative team? 

Wow.
