Introducing iWatch, The Center for Public Integrity’s New Site for Investigative Journalism

The Center for Public Integrity is starting a new site this month dedicated to investigative journalism, the New York Times reports.

The site, to be called iWatch News, will produce reporting with its staff of 37 writers and editors, contributions from freelancers, and collaboration with the nonprofit’s international unit. Its focus will be on “money and politics, government accountability, health care, the environment and national security.” Sounds serious and important!

Ultimately, the goal is to produce daily “10 to 12 original investigative pieces and aggregated content from other sources.” Yeah, it’s hard to totally avoid that whole aggregated content thing, we know.

Articles from the site will likely be featured on other sites, in particular The Huffington Post, whose investigative arm the center merged with last year. However, the nonprofit is also looking to sell subscriptions for $50 a year. “We want to be a model to show journalism, if it’s good, it can be paid for,” said William E. Buzenberg, the executive director of the center.
