Many investigative journalists have mainly resisted the defeatist discourse and excessive nostalgia that they have encountered in challenging times. Instead, they have continually expanded a social role with publicly minded advocates of their profession, citizens and other champions of a free press. Within social spheres, watchdog journalists have unexpectedly revealed news scoops that have exposed massive wrongdoing and the need to restore civic values. In order to prosper, investigative journalists have tried to abandon an exclusive, elitist culture while still upholding their profession as the high art of quality journalism. Investigative journalists are increasingly developing purposeful, democratic relations with publicly minded citizens to collaborate with experimental techniques for the advancement of civil, environmental and human rights. The chapter also presents some closing thoughts on the key concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book.
