The Washington Independent
went beta a few weeks ago. The site employs several reporters to do investigative journalism on topics of national importance.
I have no idea what bugs they are hoping to fix before official release. The site is operated by the Center for Independent Media
. The Center has launched alliterative local journalism sites as well focused on Colorado
[Messenger] and Minnesota
[Monitor]. Their independence cannot be verified as they have yet to file their first financial disclosure form. I was drawn to the Washington Independent because it is new home of Spencer Ackerman
, a close observer of national security policy, but all the stories I have read there seem to be high content and skeptical of authority.
Metafilter turned the spotlight of its attention upon investigative journalism a few months ago.
