Eamonn O'Neill

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Investigative Journalism as a genre within the UK's local press has always faced challenges and pressures. This chapter assesses where this mode of reporting currently stands in the local sector in 2013 and analyses whether new funding streams need to be identified in the wake of a recent February 2012 House of Lords Select Committee on Communications report.
