Investigative reporting is the most challenging task when journalists search for information and even go to the company or factory with hidden camera, “special technics” are needed, said Vivian Kwok, Editor-in-Chief of Bloomberg Businessweek (Chinese).


Kwok said when journalists goes to mainland for investigative reports, it is important to know some “special technics” that protect themselves.


First, she suggested employing a smart and reliable driver. Once any incident happened, the journalist has to escape from the scene as quickly as possible. Second, she said journalists should use driver’s identity to register for hotels in order to avoid suspicion. Third, after the journalists finished sting operation and need response from the company, they should reveal their identity of being a reporter.


Kwok’s colleague, Roger, who had worked for Next Magazine before, said he was sent to mainland to interview a company after he came to the magazine for three months. The company which claimed to make porcelain for the British Royal family gave Roger a feeling of “knockoff” when the factory workers only stick a label on the products for proof.


“Investigative reports rely a lot on observation,” he said and discovered some suspicious points of the factory.


Although media may receive plenty of denunciatory sheet every day, Kowk said evidence is crucial. Investigative reports cannot rely merely on rumors without sound evidence.
