Interesting: Building an Investigative News Network
My top-secret source in the world of non-profit investigative journalism, Bilbo, writes of an event that apparently has all the world of us investigatorial sluggos abuzz - the "Building an Investigative News Network" do happening this week at the Rockefeller family estate in Westchester County, New York. Read all about it here.
UPDATE (Thurs., July 2): And now, here's the declaration that came out of that conference. They've agreed to form a new non-profit entity to promote investigative journalism. Notable is the absence of ProPublica in the list of supporters. It'll be curious to see what kinds of funds these folks raise - and what direction they end up taking. Good luck!
