It's been a few short years since the concept for the Investigative Reporting Workshop originated over a series of coffee and lunch meetings. Since then, the idea has grown to a reality that now includes offices on New Mexico Avenue and a staff of 20-plus strong investigative reporters and editors.
In that time, we've launched nine in-depth investigations ranging from nuclear energy's big lobbying push and green energy stimulus funds going overseas to an analysis of financial statements from every bank in the country and the political influence of media and broadband companies.
And, that's just the beginning.
Before the end of the year, we will also be launching several new investigations digging into the business of immigration, medical technology, the green energy industry, and the new journalism ecosystem.
Stay tuned for details on an Open House we will be hosting this fall.
