Isiah Carey, reporter for Houston FOX owned station KRIV was investigating a paternity suit involving Houston Texans Running Back Arian Foster.

Carey got Foster’s address off the lawsuit and visited his home, but not before knocking on the door of the woman in question. KRIV also posted the exchange on its website with the headline, “Arian Foster speaks to media for first time since paternity lawsuit.”

Isiah Carey of KRIV, the Fox O&O in Houston, was recently interviewed by Houston Press. The investigative reporter discussed the advantages of social media:

You use social media and the Internet a lot. How do you think that benefits you?
