The current reality is that it’s harder than ever to do investigative journalism amidst a broken freedom of information system and tight resources, in the shadow of bigger-than-ever crisis PR machines.
The Investigative Journalism Foundation (IJF) has launched in Canada aimed at helping change that with the introduction of a series of searchable databases tracking political donations, lobbying and charitable tax returns.
On this episode of Broadcast Dialogue – The Podcast, we welcome IJF CEO & Editor-in-Chief Zane Schwartz to talk about the not-for-profit’s mission to help Canadian journalists uncover government waste and corruption and facilitate more investigative journalism.
