NECIR - The Awesome Place Where I Work

Wednesday, June 3, 2009
This summer I am interning with the New England Center for Investigative Reporting. They have an office at Boston University in the College of Communication. It is a non-profit center and is a blossoming example of a new model for journalism... since newspapers are in serious trouble. Papers can't afford to pay investigative reporters anymore and as a result many investigative reporters are out of a job and real watch dog journalism is taking up less space in the print world. By establishing centers like the NECIR, investigative reporting has a new place to thrive.

Pro Publica is another great example. They are very successful.
