Opinion | The Demise of Watchdog Journalism in China - The New York Times
More than five years into President Xi Jinping’s rule, the more insidious implications of his authoritarian revival are coming into focus. One casualty is investigative journalism. Having suffered a decline as rapid as their rise, muckraking journalists feel lost.

I had the opportunity to share this with Ryan's Elite Mastermind group last week. And I want to make sure you have it, too. It's a badass tool for creating headlines (subject lines, and bullets) from prospect dialogue. @NateDye and I presented this during the Ask Masterclass promotion, and it works wonders for turning your Deep Dive Survey responses into powerful short copy.

More Eric Leifer

Target ambiguity is commonly used when trying to criticize an opponent without directing that criticism to anyone in particular. It is often used in political discourse. Leifer and Rajah use the example of a speech Kennedy made in 1963 to criticize communists or communist sympathizers. Without attacking any specific group, Kennedy used the speech as a way to feel out and test the political terrain, while also casting himself in a hero’s position. Using a strawman argument is probably also exemplary of target ambiguity.

Content ambiguity is similar conceptually to Padgett’s and Ansell’s concept of “robust action.” The idea is that we do not want to claim a superordinate role in an interaction too soon, as doing so gives our counterparts the opportunity to step in and assert their own primacy. Instead of directly asserting ourselves, we try to hide the content of our actions, so that our actions can later prove to conveniently fit the roles that emerge in the interaction. Therefore, when we interact with others in a business exchange, we try to remain as neutral, bland, and amiable as possible so that, no matter what the outcome of the exchange is, we are prepared to assert control over the situation when the opportunity arises (i.e. that is what I was trying to accomplish all along!). In other words, revealing too much intention can hurt our ability to accomplish those intentions. It’s better to be as ambiguous as possible about our intentions and deftly try to get others to reveal their intentions first.
