Event description

Description

While the mainstream media withers, investigative practice is thriving, but it’s easy to lose sight of who’s funding it; big tech companies and philanthropic foundations, partisan NGOs and think-tanks. As investigative journalism becomes funded by practitioners outside its traditional field, are journalists still calling the tune?

In this session, Investigative Practice looks into the confusing new funding landscape for investigative journalism, and tackles the issues this raises for real, truth-seeking independent journalism.

Chair:

Maria Teresa Ronderos, Open Society Foundation

Panellists:

Matt Kennard, Journalist and author of The Racket

Rachel Oldroyd, The Bureau of Investigative Journalism
