The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism Investigative Journalist Craig McKune.

Investigative journalism is risky and expensive.

Craig McKune, amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism

The Gupta emails are real… the process of obtaining the data has gone through due diligence… we’re checking facts and corroborating… the way it’s corroborating is impossible to make up… We stand by everything we’ve published in the #GuptaLeaks…

Craig McKune, amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism

We haven’t been approached by the South African authorities, per se.

Craig McKune, amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism

The amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism is a non-profit company founded to develop investigative journalism in the public interest.

AmaBhungane is isiZulu for the “dung beetles”.

Ray White (in for The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield) interviewed amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism Investigative Journalist Craig McKune for his “The Science Of” feature.

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for more quotes from it).

amaBhungane is a group of journalists and punks!

Craig McKune, amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism

We get most of our funding from foundational funders…

Craig McKune, amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism

Since last year we’ve been pushing a crowdfunding campaign.

Craig McKune, amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism

We disclose our donors on our website.

Craig McKune, amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism

Transparency is key.

Craig McKune, amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism

When we started reporting on the #GuptaLeaks we hired security… We’re not necessarily safe…

Craig McKune, amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism

We don’t think Black First Land First (BLF) is a credible threat… They’re paid hacks…

Craig McKune, amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism

We can’t promise our emails aren’t hacked… the safest way to deliver tipoffs is in hardcopy…
