Why do you believe in investigative journalism?
Chay Hofileña, editor, Rappler
"Through investigative journalism, reporters fulfill their responsibility to hold to account the powerful, abusive, neglectful, and incompetent in government. In a democracy, exposing the wrongdoing that others want to hide is critical to ensure that citizens get the government they deserve or that change happens for the better. Those who do wrong must not shamelessly get away."
