The process of building effectiveness of investigation press

It is not that people deliberately make themselves miserable when they go on business trip for a good work. But it is important to understand that if we accept suffering, we will understand the problem, have emotions, share with the problem / person / case, especially the problem of harm to nature, wild animals. And that emotion will be spread to the readers. Moreover, the meticulous preparation always comes with the result that there are many documents. In the investigation, one of the most precious, the vital thing is the document.

Therefore, the priority should be original, direct, convincing materials. We need to respect documents obtained from questioning, problem analysis, instead of just ... interviews; It should be directed to live stories that have video, images rather than just narratives. There should be a form of expression appropriate to each case, each issue, not rigid dogmatic, do not impose expressions before the investigation.

Always put yourself in the emotions, wisdom and needs of the recipients to take the form as well as the most practical, persuasive materials. As said in a famous book: "Write to the reader." It should not follow the reader's mediocre tastes, the journalist needs to stand on the reader's side to think and have emotion. Also put yourself in the context: if you are the authority, how will you act? And anticipate the next evolution of the case, especially when the work is "spread" in the press.

Especially the commitment, direct experience of the journalist will be highlighted. In the textbook there is a great saying: to write about forest fire, it is necessary to touch or smell ash, feel the heat of fire. However, it is not necessary to jump into the boiling fat to write about fat pieces. So, there are documents, if you can take them indirectly, record them by telephone or by face time, it is not necessary to board or drive a few days to meet them! That is, do not stand on ceremony. Only with the sharp mind of the real journalist, you can know to pass the stereotypes, to go to the results just right and fast and still be sure to win. Ethics, the level of journalists is that, doing many things, many cases with the fastest speed, the biggest effect, but cannot sip a story in a way too expensive, time lost.

Before writing or sitting program, journalists need to re-picture the whole incident and "cut" the problem by right "point" (which journalists think) that the press public need. That’s to say it needs to be flexible in form. Showing simply, easy to understand, avoid that the words, data, cut interviews dilute the problem. Before writing, it is necessary to put the story to infiltrate into the journalist, and then "release" according to the taste of the material (such as their bad odors!). Thus, you will have an identified work. You should avoid both written and quoted excerpts from the tapes, as well as cutting linear images over time. The problem should be written in emotion under the control of reason, composed by emotion and reason, but cannot presented "reverse flow" as a thesis or report. Of course, when needed, it can create a closer interaction between the character and the public: it can be stripped of audio or video recordings with the most original, raw, vivid audio. But that way, it can only be applied universally and effectively, once it is born with the regulation of reason, sharp and skillful. Excellent effect is born with real skill, if not, the skills become double-edged sword.

People can do journalistic work for many different purposes. It can only be considered a job, such as you have salary so you must write. But, true journalists need / and always honor their social responsibility / their agency responsibility. Journalists can do tasks beyond the task of writing articles, making films, designing radio programs for their agencies. That is, they can, in their capacity as citizens, be responsible for the hot social problems.

It needs to remind the issue, prompt the authorities to take charge. Analyze the facts, present in a persuasive way the whole story, very clear investigation, it is the responsibility of journalists, but solving the problem is the responsibility of the authorities. Journalism is the fourth power in society. It is important to know how to use this functionality to turn journalists' suggestions, analyzes, and denouncements (from investigative work) into actions of relevant agencies. As such, the results of the investigation must point out the outcome to the problem, blame specific responsibility on each individual or organization. At the same time, journalists, press agencies need to work out plans, raise the voice of experts, managers and the scientific community. Analyze clearly for readers, audiences, and management forces, especially the senior leaders in the same to take part in. Only those pressures can push the problem to the ultimate resolution. The activities that heighten the social responsibility of journalists will bring the best results.

In the process of persistently carrying out the social responsibility of journalists on the issue of protection of the living environment in general, journalists also need to take into account the delusions and mischievousness of the object, especially when it is promoted by bad people. Journalists need do independent investigation, documentation is only taken by available at reliable sources, the sources that we suspect may be "in other words" need to be verified. For example, forests and animals are slaughtered, in a conventional thought, local authorities must be jointly responsible or accountable. When the nature is slaughtered, village is responsible before the commune, the commune is responsible before the district, the district is responsible before the province,  the province is responsible before the government. So often, grassroots officials want to hide. Journalists should investigate independently or ask the sources to keep the most objective attitude. At the dialogue with the authorities, journalists should raise more questions. If there is cover or lies, it is necessary to denounce those negative thoughts.

Investigate, denounce, turn the problem or put the bad guys in front of the horseshoe, change a law, save the wildlife before it becomes the prey of evil killings ... those things are not simple. A journalist's negligence may have a detrimental effect on the reputation, honor, and life of many individuals and organizations, as well as on the journalist and his / her agency. . However, who knows how to overcome that difficulty, they will reap the glory. The most valuable are the precious values ​​from the investigative work they have given to the community, so that their youth does not drift meaninglessly. Once the media investigation has been completed, it means that in journalism, the journalist can do well everything. There is no real value that one can easily achieve; Free cheese is only in the mousetrap; no success does not carry the salty taste of sweat; the sweat of the creator, no drops are considered the last drop.
