A new reporting approach for journalistic impact: Bringing together investigative reporting and solutions journalism

by Brent Walth, Nicole Dahmen, and Kathryn Thier

Investigative reporting identifies social problems and names people in power who should be held accountable. Solutions journalism is an evidence-based reporting approach that covers credible responses to social problems. To consider these reporting approaches in tandem, this research uses a quantitative content analysis to examine both investigative and solutions reporting in an effort to determine to what extent a combined reporting approach of these two genres may already exist in journalistic practice.
