What is the difference between current Crikey journalism and inquiry journalism?

Our current Crikey stories bring our readers the inside word on what’s really going on in politics, government, media, business, the arts, sport and other aspects of public life in Australia. We reveal how the powerful operate behind the scenes, and tackle the stories insiders are talking about, but other media can’t or won’t cover. Our new inquiry journalism team will dig even deeper and help our readers better understand the backstories of the issues that matter.
