Journalism in the Public Interest


Get the Latest Issue of ProPublica’s Magazine

The November issue of the ProPublica Magazine is out, and the theme is “No Justice.” Focusing on the dark side of the legal system, we highlight A.C. Thompson’s riveting reporting from New Orleans, in which he investigated how civilians came to be murdered in the lawless aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. It’s a timeless example of great journalism, and Thompson provides an exclusive account of how he got onto the stories and what has happened since.

We also look at prosecutorial misconduct in New York, how suspicious deaths of the elderly rarely get investigated, and how states have loosened gun laws.

Am delighted to have discovered Pro Publica…a little investigative journalism for a change! Will be contributing from time to time.

Suggestion: Could you offer your magazine in .epub, please? Am not a mac or apple or ipod person. Am a PC laptop person with an epub ereader. Will continue to be an epub person if only to thwart Bezos who has damp dreams about setting his kindles into everything that’s published…anywhere.

Thank you!

Ladies and Gentlemen,

  I must confess to some irritation given the appearance that your magazine can only be downloaded on Apple devices - how does this relate to your commitment to the Common Good? By relying solely on Apple products you are sponsoring the most egomaniac company in the whole computer world.
  What about making your magazine simply aviailable as .pdf?

I am afraid I need to join the two previous comments. I have many kinds of devices able to read electronic books but none of them is and never will be Apple’s product. Would it be possible to distribute either EPUB or PDF?

I believe it would only help to share your stories among people. And that is, I suppose, your interest, too.

Thank you.


I am joining the previous comments too. I am interested in reading the magazine, but i dont have any Apple’s product. Why is the magazine available from the Apple Store Only?

Lament the e-only distribution. I understand completely why you are doing this, but I wish to be detachable from my devices occasionally. I would pay real money for this.

I, too, very much dislike reading material on an internet screen. I grow up with actual physical books and magazines, and I like to hold them, book mark them, put them down, when have no more reading time, and pick them up again when I do. I too would pay for a paper copy of Pro Publica, But I imagine this is too expensive a method for you to introduce. I’ll keep struggling with the on line version, but please et me know if you ever develop an alternative. I do value your reporting.
Thank you,
Catherine Morrison

Why would anyone have a device that is not made by Apple?

This is in reply to Mr. Satterwhite’s last comment:
(1) Apple is the paragon of a non-cooperative, egoistical company that operates on the monopoly system - no compatibility to other systems - yet does not shrink away from exploiting the weak wherever they can and cheating everybody - us - of the fair share of taxes that a modern state depends on. I believe this business model is called capitalism - and Karl Marx - in his grave in Highgate Cemetery in London - chuckles - I told you they’ll ruin themselves in the end. They profit from federal infrastructure subsidies but pay less taxes - percentagewise - than my housekeeper. What an inspiration, an example to follow.
(2) Do I understand correctly that every man and woman on this earth should hence own only Apple devices - in Africa, Siberia, or Nicaragua? Are you, Mr. Sattenwhite, even aware of the implications of your proposal - monopolies are much more efficient - aren’t they?
I am impressed by your boldness, but not your intellect. Best regards - CFF
