ProPublica is an independent, nonprofit newsroom that puts the power of investigative journalism to work in the public service. We shine a light on abuses of power and betrayals of the public trust wherever we find them. We stick with stories as long as it takes to tell them right and hold power to account.
ProPublica’s newsroom is led by some of the nation’s most distinguished editors and staffed with the best reporters in the field. We report on stories that aren’t being told elsewhere – stories that have the potential to spur reform and effect real-world change. ProPublica is non-partisan and non-ideological, and we adhere to the strictest standards of journalistic impartiality.
