Whistleblower and investigative weekend roundup

My colleague Lora Pabst had a busy week responding to your tips, two of which led to stories in Sunday's Star Tribune: the astonishing story of a woman given health care against her will, and the ordeal of a cyclist whose ride was crushed by a city bus. Readers of the newspaper have already read my colleague Dan Browning's probing examination of talk radio host Pat Kiley's business deal that has sparked an investor uprising. The story won't be online until Wednesday, but you can watch a video produced by my colleague J. Pinkley. It features an interview with Dan and audio clips of Kiley's radio show - revealing once again the power of multimedia to enhance our traditionally text-focused investigative reporting.
