Investigative and In-Depth Reporting.
Bolch, Judith; Miller, Kay
Using the case history approach, this book examines each step of the news gathering process and shows, through numerous examples drawn from the experiences of professional reporters, the procedures to use in tracking down and developing a story. The eight chapters discuss the following topics: background information on investigative reporting; characteristics of the investigative reporter; origins of investigative story ideas; sources of information for developing the story; controlling the interview; deciding when a story is justified; recognizing the news manipulator; and ethics for the investigative reporter.
