We publish online and in print, often partnering with other news organizations, including The Philadelphia Inquirer and FRONTLINE.

Our first project with FRONTLINE was the documentary Flying Cheap, which looked at regional airline safety, and which we followed up with Flying Cheaper. In October 2010, we aired Lost in Detention, which detailed the Obama administration's record deportations of illegal immigrants, and their treatment in U.S. detention centers.

Other partners include:

NBC News

New America Media

The Washington Post

McClatchy Newspapers



Politics Daily

The Financial Times

The Huffington Post Investigative Fund

DC Open Government Coalition

Partnerships take a variety of forms, including simultaneous publication of the same investigation or summaries of our findings.

Some organizations publish an analysis of our work along with additional reporting by their own staffers, as did McClatchy with our reporting on nuclear lobbying. Still others have our reporters as guest bloggers on their websites, including Workshop reporter John Dunbar, who is working with The Washington Post on a project that looks at disparities in broadband access.

A few examples of how our partners used our work or collaborated with us follow. If you're interested in partnerships, contact Lynne Perri at
