Steele and Barlett helped launch the field of data journalism through their groundbreaking use of computers to analyze violent crime data in the 1970s. Twenty years later, they co-authored the series America: What Went Wrong? for The Inquirer, called one of the 100 best pieces of journalism of the 20th century by the NYU School of Journalism. Published as a book, the series became a No. 1 New York Times bestseller.
