Investigative journalists cite low pay, lack of inspiration for quitting

The number of China's investigative journalists has declined by more than half since 2011, and a majority of those remaining in the profession say they intend to change careers, according to a study done by a leading Chinese university. Researchers at the School of Communication and Design at Sun Yat-sen University in South China sent questionnaires to 163 investigative journalists. Their findings show that the number of China's investigative journalists has dropped 57.5 percent in the last six years. The report says the profession is suffering a huge brain drain in part due to relatively lower pay and potential dangers associated with the job.
