Investigative Journalism 101
Transcript of Investigative Journalism 101
Moral or ethical transgressions
Investigative journalism is always pursued in the public interest. If it is not for public interest, then the investigation risks losing its credibility and authenticity.
Uncovering previously unknown or withheld information
Connecting the dots or putting into context information that is publicly available
Journalist(s) taking the initiative and demonstrating enterprise, not leak reports
Investing time and effort to piece together and present the investigation
How is this different from 'normal' or non-investigative journalism?
Isn't all journalism investigative by default?
Is a news report from a press conference investigative reporting?
Is a journalist doing investigative reporting when covering the crime beat?
Does the publication or broadcast of a leak constitute investigative journalism?
What is public interest?
Exposing wrondoing so that the public at large may benefit. It should not benefit the journalist(s) or the news outlet or any interested party. This will amount to private interest.
