It's also a dangerous profession, with investigative journalists and bloggers around the world consistently facing threats or violence, sometimes with fatal consequences: http://www.statista.com/statistics/266227/reprisals-against-journalists-bloggers-and-media/

Investigative journalism is a type of journalism that requires extensive research and deep investigation about a single topic to discover a truth or uncover secrets, usually related to crime or wrongdoing.
