What others are saying about watchdog journalism:

  • True/Slant: Matt Stroud interviews investigative journalist Steve Weinberg about his decision to work with journalists paid by the Church of Scientology to investigate the St. Petersburg Times. “Is it OK for veteran investigative reporters to write for the Scientologists? Or is working for an organization ‘so hostile to outside journalists’ just not right?”
  • Nieman Journalism Lab: Conservative nonprofit groups are hiring investigative reporters, which could muddle the landscape for other nonprofits that try to hew closely to news operations.
