Jeffrey Anderson on reporting in the Southeast cities

jeffrey-anderson-grab.jpgBefore the LA Times rediscovered the corruption in Bell, and in some cases before DA Steve Cooley got to town with his corruption prosecutions, investigative reporter Jeffrey Anderson was digging into the dirty dealings in the southeast cities for the LA Weekly. KCET interviewed Anderson about the challenges of reporting in places like Cudahy last decade.

Sample: "When I covered Cudahy, they had never heard of a Freedom of Information Act request...It was an intimidating environment...there was a clear sense of obstinance and a great deal of fear in the source community.....a very menacing environment."

The interview was timed to a 'SoCal Connected' investigation in the city of Huntington Park. Anderson currently reports for the Washington Times.
