He has won awards from numerous organizations, including the National Press Club and the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. Mr. Miniter has been distressed to see the decline of local investigative reporting in the modern media landscape, and in the coming years, he plans to launch a new wire service, which is based on the elimination of anonymity and the foregrounding of evidence. The service will provide the name of the source and timestamp of each quote, in addition to using facial recognition software and GPS coordinates to verify the identity of the source and the location of the reporter. Mr. Miniter wants to bring trust back to the news.
