Investigative journalists are the gumshoes of the journalist world. They do everything they need to solve the case. The case can be political corruption, healthcare negligence, pretty much anything you can think about, there can be something to investigate.
Investigative journalists can produce written stories or AV content, including documentaries. It may take a long time to put together an investigation, some investigations cross borders, some are hyperlocal.
One investigation often results in many stories.
Fun fact: South African journalists worked with journalists all over the world to track where rich people and companies have hidden their money to avoid paying tax.
