Kickstarter Hires Reporter To Investigate Failed $3.4M Project

I do believe this is the first time I have ever seen something like this. I would have expected the authorities to launch an investigation, or maybe even a private detective, but a journalist? That's a first.

This time, however, I’ve been commissioned by Kickstarter itself. The company wants to help the backers of this failed project get the information they are entitled to under their agreement with the project creator. They would like to uncover the story of Zano, from its inception to the present, and decided that the best way to do that was to hire a journalist. The primary audience for the story is the 12,000+ backers of the project, although I will also make the story publicly available once I’ve completed it, most likely in the middle of January.
