Crusading journalists have played a central role in American politics: checking abuses of power, revealing corporate misdeeds, and exposing government corruption. Muckraking journalism is part and parcel of American democracy. But how many people know about the role that muckraking has played around the world? Columbia professors Joseph E. Stiglitz and Anya Schiffrin, editor of Global Muckraking: 100 Years of Investigative Journalism from Around the World, discuss this groundbreaking new book that presents the most important examples of world-changing journalism.
