By Aeman Ansari, Reporter
Behind the Headlines, published on Mar. 5, 2008, presents the history of investigative journalism in Canada from its early days to the present day. Cecil Rosner, a journalist with more than 30 years of experience, uses case studies to map out the evolution of this kind of journalism in Canada. He explores the various developments that have taken place within the changing historical and social landscapes. This text provides fresh insight into this previously undocumented history by looking at topics such as public broadcasting, the commercialization of the press, alternative media and the impact of technology.
