How funds U.S. investigative journalism?

 

Abstract

 

Investigative Journalism has not been done inside media companies anymore. They do not provide conditions necessary to sustain this activity for monitoring and control of policy power in a society. Both radio, like television, such as print, have been cornered by fall of advertising investment, incessant rise of price of paper as raw material, and displaced by arrival of telephone operators as new owners of communication news channel. Managers of traditional media have been forced to make budget cuts. However, nonprofit organizations has initiated recovery of investigative journalism. The aim of this work is to make a compilation of six major U.S. efforts by providing resources to investigative journalism. I try to describes their ways to get money, but also identifies its risks.
