Investigative journalism is expensive but it is an effective and important tool in holding power to account and revealing dysfunctions in government oversight of massive infrastructure projects or misuse of taxpayer dollars.
That’s why you see so many big media organizations cutting back on investigative budgets or destroying them completely. But investigative journalism provides the public with information that is critical to public discourse. In some cases, it literally saves lives. It can protect public health and expose corruption.
It is crucial that funding for non profit investigative projects are independent from commercial or governmental interests and support. That is why CCJ asks ordinary citizens to donate to support investigative journalism to lead to reform through persistent highlighting of malfeasance and corruption.
