Doctoral thesis, Goldsmiths, University of London [Thesis]. This thesis is about the dangers of following the path of a model for investigative journalism in Mexico based on the 20th Century North American corporate model of the press, anchored in neoliberal ideology in the middle of raising violence. It is situated in my own experience as a practicing investigative journalist who is deeply dissatisfied with the existing circumstances of journalism in Mexico, but who recognises the necessity of finding a means to reveal human suffering and corruption. The thesis examines the following questions: How is investigative journalism in Mexico constrained by the national media system and multiple political forces? How can we escape neoliberal practices that endanger the purpose of investigative journalism in the public interest?
