Investigative Journalism is Back in the Arab World

It’s been almost two months since I took up the Knight Fellowship and six investigative journalism units in Egypt, Jordan and the West Bank are up and running.

Training for both broadcast and print journalists at several different media outlets has been completed, and investigations are underway in the areas of stock exchange corruption, road accidents and even business by some influential business men who are also prominent politicians.

In Jordan, Farah Al-Nas Radio has completed an investigation on child alcohol consumption in a Jordanian border region.
