What is happening to investigative journalism? A pilot study of ABC’s Four Corners
The purpose of investigative journalism is to hold powerful interests to account and highlight systemic corruption and breakdown. Ettema and Glasser, and de Burgh, define the investigative journalist’s role as to bring attention to injury and injustice, expose information that is in the public interest, and encourage legislative reform.
