EDIT: Thank you for all the questions. That's all I have time to answer today. You can read all of my work here https://www.usatoday.com/staff/2647742001/gina-barton/

During my first week as reporter at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in 2002, the biggest story by far was the disappearance of Alexis Patterson, 7 years old and Black, who vanished on her way to school. A month later, Elizabeth Smart was kidnapped from her bedroom in Utah, sparking a conversation in our newsroom about why Elizabeth’s case got so much more national media attention than Alexis’ and whether race played a role. Through the years, I’ve stayed in touch with Alexis’ mother, who believes her daughter is alive and will someday be found. I want to help make that happen if I can, and I want to do my part to help other missing children whose stories have yet to be told. The story I wrote to kick off the project can be found here.

I have more than 15 years of experience as an investigative reporter . In 2012, my reporting on the death of Derek Williams in Milwaukee police custody prompted the medical examiner to change the cause of death from natural to homicide. For that investigation, I was honored with a George Polk award. I am also the producer and host of the national Edward R. Murrow Award-winning podcast Unsolved, which will feature Alexis Patterson’s case in season 4.

Where do you stand on official sanctions and holding reporters and news stations accountable for spreading false information? What is a good way we can get a handle on it?

Most, if not all, journalists would agree that a free press is fundamental to a democratic society. One solution to misinformation is a public that recognizes which news organizations hire trained and ethical reporters, and go to them for coverage. I also think it's important that when we make mistakes, we correct them promptly.

Hi everyone: That’s all I have time to answer today. Thank you for all the questions. Keep following our coverage at usatoday.com and email me with tips, questions etc at [email protected].

Hi everyone. My name is Josh Meyer, and I am a 30-year veteran of covering law enforcement and intelligence issues affecting security on the local, state, national and global level for the Los Angeles Times, NBC News and Politico and now USA TODAY.

My recent reporting revolves around Russian President Vladimir Putin and his finances. Throughout his decades-long political career, Putin has used public resources and a close circle of friends to become what many authorities believe is one of the richest men in the world. The U.S. and its Western allies have tried to personally sanction Putin for launching a war against Ukraine, which has now lasted over two months. But with his suspected wealth hidden all over the world through friends and family, the U.S. and its European allies are finding it's harder to financially penalize Putin than they thought. So, where did Putin's fortune come from, and where is he hiding it? AMA!

Since your links require a subscription to read, can you post your information somehow so people not subscribed can read your articles. Also, as of right now all I for.ation is pointing to Putin having a wealth that no one can figure out and that Elon Musk is still showing as the world's richest man.

Excellent question. We paywall these stories because investigative journalism costs money to produce and so we need to sell our service in order to pay for it -- just like any other product or service you buy. And it's relatively cheap -- the $1 a week buys you amazing coverage of all sorts of things -- news, lifestyle, sports, entertainment, wellness. For 14 cents a day. Not bad.

EDITED: That's all the time I have for today. Thanks so much for all the great questions and for hanging out. Stick with us at USA TODAY throughout the weekend for all kinds of draft coverage. You can find it all here: https://www.usatoday.com/sports/nfl/

INTRO: Hi, Reddit. I'm Mike Middlehurst-Schwartz, the NFL editor for USA TODAY Sports. I also lead our draft coverage and am looking forward to talking about everything that might go down this week. I'm based out of Los Angeles and lead our team of NFL reporters, analysts and columnists. My final mock draft won't come out until Thursday morning, but we already have a lot of interesting content previewing this week. What top story lines, prospects and teams do you want to talk about? Let's get into it!

In more and more mock drafts, Tyler Lindenbaum falls out of the 1st round. Do his short arms really scare off so many team despite his outstanding college performance? And do you think Baalke and the Jags will take him at 33 (Jags center Linder has retired recently) or does he have to wait until mid/late 2nd?

I think it's not just the arms but the overall frame. That's maybe a case where his "slide" is really just that he only fits so many teams' parameters for the position. Hard to tell what his floor would be, but seems like he should be somewhere in the early second mix. The Jaguars would make sense ... though Baalke is on record about his affinity for prospects with long arms.

Would Houston take Hutch if he was there, assuming Walker and Thibadeaux are gone?

Hard to say for sure, as Houston is a difficult team to pin down. But it sure would be a surprise to me, at least, if they passed in that scenario.
