Amid an existential crisis in the media industry, more and more newsrooms are foregoing investigative reporting, which can involve a lot of resources without the certainty of a payoff.
But Sonia Randhawa, co-director of the Centre for Independent Journalism, argues there should be continued funding for media investigations that hold power to account. BFM also speaks to Malaysiakini’s Aidila Razak on the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists’ latest financial expose, the FinCEN files, and what it reveals about the global banking system.
