Is Investigative Journalism a dangerous Career at times?

I have always thought investigative journalism was the most interesting career option in the media industry. In this age corruption is running rampant, it’s very important to have integrity in our media so the public can get pure unadulterated truth, even if it hurts a few people. I’d plan to stay in the US and investigate crime, but I’ve always wondered would there be a large risk of being found in a dumpster, hacked to pieces by drug lords or a serial killer?

Investigative journalism is treacherous by its very nature — in the U.S. and in many parts of the world, particularly in the Mideast. Each year, about 50 or so investigative journalists turn up dead overseas. You may want to Google the story of Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journal reporter who was killed by his terrorist captors in Pakistan. Also check the story of reporter Don Bolles who died 30 years ago ostensibly investigating organized crime in Arizona. One of my favourites was writer Upton Sinclair who wrote “The Jungle” in the early 1900s, disclosing deplorable conditions in the Midwestern meat packing industry. It resulted in President Theodore Roosevelt calling for (and getting) strict federal meat inspection laws.
