This title offers a mixture of fieldwork and analysis of internal
and public documents and media cases that accurately survey the
field and put it in context. In the framework of democratic
societies, investigative journalism is deemed as serving the public
interest, helping maintain a healthy public sphere and helping to
hold power into account. The ideals of a democratic society justify
the idea and practice of investigative journalism. Alternately,
modern China runs an authoritarian system of the one-party rule, so
where does the idea of investigative journalism fit in? And, why
can investigative journalism appear in such an authoritarian
society and with what characteristics? "Investigative Journalism in
China" examines the four aspects of Chinese investigative
journalism (the Idea of investigative journalism and its comparison
against Western contexts; the Development/Influence; Reporters and
their work; and the Impacts on society), by using empirical data
from Dr. Jingrong Tong's fieldwork at two newsrooms (the Southern
Metropolitan Daily and the Dahe Daily) in 2006, 73
in-depth-interviews conducted from 2004-2008, and the analysis of
internal and public documents and media cases in order to
accurately survey the field and put it in context.
