My independent study focuses on the development and impact of investigative journalism. I look to analyze key investigative pieces that have shaped investigative journalism’s development. The Spanish American War, Muckraking, and the Watergate scandal are all journalistic moments that have exemplified developments in investigative journalism. Technology has also played a crucial role in developing investigative journalism. Through a case study, I look to explain how the impact of investigative reports is utilized to strengthen American democracy.
