Summary
"Investigated Reporting is Chad Raphael's exploration of the relationship between journalism and regulation during American television's first sustained period of muck-raking, between 1960 and 1975. Offering new and important insights into the economic, political, and industrial forces that shaped documentaries such as Harvest of Shame, Hunger in America, and Banks and the Poor, Raphael puts the growth of investigative television documentary into its institutional, regulatory, and cultural context." "Those who see investigative reporting as a watchdog on government will be surprised to find that these controversial reports relied heavily on official sources for inspiration, information, and regulatory protection from muckraking's critics. Raphael's historical research draws on a variety of primary sources, including recently opened papers from the Nixon White House. Investigated Reporting exposes the complex play of influence through which investigative documentaries were both shaped and attacked by government officials, and highlights the troubling legacy for contemporary regulation of television news."--Jacket
