Description:

We are building a multi-platform website where sources can submit news tips and evidence of corruption. These will become the raw material for stories that will be reported and written by our professional journalists, and presented in hard-hitting news reports available to a worldwide audience. Where feasible, our 100 reporters will work hand-in-hand with citizen journalists in the U.S. and abroad, sharing bylines and payment. Our cadre of professionals may also initiate stories independently, and tap our network of grass roots supporters for assistance. Our mission is to cover corruption of all sorts.

Coverage of arming teachers

Over that last eight years, interest in arming teachers with guns is the result of school shootings. News coverage and Google searches reflect these trends.
