Description

This absorbing book describes the details of three real case studies of investigative journalism about sports. Stories include journalists exposing the FIFA soccer scandal and Olympic committee wrongdoings, the promotion of violence in hockey leading to death, and the abuse of USA gymnasts by their team doctor and the attempt to cover it up. Readers will gain an understanding of the research process, the ethical standards journalists must follow, and the perseverance required to confirm a story and affect change. Teacher’s guide available.
