The Center for Public Integrity has built a solid reputation over 22 years for independent investigative journalism during a period when the genre has been disappearing from major news sources. Their stories are often based on deep analysis of relevant data. They are non-partisan, addressing government, corporate, and international misdeeds and failures. Their international wing, the International Consortium for Investigative Journalism (ICIJ), has built a spectacular network of journalists and an outstanding record of important stories. Generally CPI reports are recognized by major news media as compelling stories that trigger a lot of secondary articles and, sometimes at least, corrective actions by multiple responsible parties. Everyone could learn a lot by examining the www.publicintegrity.org website. I'm proud to be associated with this much-needed organization. Gil Omenn, Ann Arbor, MI

For over twenty years, the Center for Public Integrity has been doing the kind of journalism that too many mainstream newspapers and magazines have abandoned: hard hitting, powerful stories of matters that are of great importance to the public, both nationally and internationally. The world of nonprofit journalism has grown over the years, but CPI was one of the first models of this approach to reporting the news. It has established itself as an important voice of sanity, intelligence, credibility, independence and, yes, integrity in the best tradition of journalism. And for that, as one of the important vehicles for insuring the health of our democracy.
