Reporter Paul Kiel will be taking readers’ questions on the foreclosure crisis in a Reddit chat tomorrow, April 11, starting at 3 p.m.
Paul has been reporting on foreclosures for the past three years. He won the 2011 Scripps Howard Award for his work, and his e-book, “The Great American Foreclosure Story,” came out today. It ties all the elements of the foreclosure crisis into one compelling narrative. We highly suggest you read it.
Prior to ProPublica, Paul covered congressional corruption and the Justice Department at TPMMuckraker.
You can ask him almost anything about the foreclosure crisis and investigative reporting. (What’s the best way to get a mortgage modification? How did the government’s decisions affect the foreclosure crisis? To what extent are irresponsible borrowers responsible for the crisis? What’s it like to report on such a massive, nationwide problem?)
To join the chat, just head to the Reddit IAmA homepage at 3 p.m. You can read the whole chat without an account, but to participate, you’ll have to register via the link in the upper right hand corner. If you like, you can start leaving questions in the comments below, and we’ll transfer them to the chat.
