The agony and the ecstasy of investigative journalism and the emotional discipline needed to expose wrongdoing
Maeve McClenaghan is a reporter at the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, a London-based, not-for-profit organisation that works to uncover stories in the public interest and hold power to account. In this candid interview, Maeve talks about the thrills and frustrations of working to expose injustice; how attitudes towards journalism differ in the U.S.; the emotional impact of probing wrongdoing; how more journalism can mean less objectivity; and why investigative journalism defies political boundaries.
