We will be the champion of FACTS, and the Mortal Enemy of innuendo, hyperbole, speculation, and nonsense.
Nothing is more important to Democracy than an informed electorate.

Vigilant broadcast media is part of civic responsibility in America. "The Founding Fathers were smart enough to realize that if you monopolize the tools to forge ideas, you get tyranny." - Jim Pearson, A.K.A. D.J. Him; "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?"
Public radio’s first investigative reporting series hits airwaves this weekend with the premiere of “Reveal.”This pilot is The Center for Investigative Reporting’s first foray into producing our own radio show, an effort made in collaboration with our partners at the Public Radio Exchange (PRX) – the digital and distribution powerhouse behind “The Moth Radio Hour,” “State of the Re:Union” and “WTF with Marc Maron.”To learn more about the project, visit revealradio.org. Follow the show on Twitter at @Reveal and on Facebook at facebook.com/revealradio.
“Reveal” is a first-of-its-kind radio show that brings listeners deep into current investigations and captures the drama and high stakes of the reporting process. The show will break investigations from CIR and other news organizations from across the country and around the world. Impact will be a significant theme that will play into future episodes, as the broadcast reports to the audience what happened – or did not happen – as a result of the investigations.See the review from the Columbia Journalism Review
