WASHINGTON, Nov. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- RealClearInvestigations will curate the best investigative reporting found anywhere, produce its own in-depth journalism, and make its original work available to other news organizations.
Tom Kuntz, a 28-year veteran of The New York Times, is the editor of this new endeavor. "Now more than ever readers need a trusted home for investigative news, whether reported by newspapers or digital upstarts," says Kuntz. "RealClearInvestigations will take on that role. In doing so it will help round out RealClear's collection of sites offering a stimulating reader experience with breadth and depth unmatched anywhere."
"Fact-based reporting is the heart of the news business, and investigative journalism is such reporting in its highest form," said RealClear Media Group Executive Editor Carl Cannon. "The great editor John Carroll, while directing his staff to their umpteenth Pulitzer Prize, put it this way: 'A journalist's work is a counterweight to the misuse of power.' RealClearInvestigations will draw attention to those brave souls -- whether they work for famous news organizations or digital start-ups -- who follow that credo."
RealClearInvestigations debuts with timely features for the countdown to the election and beyond. For each presidential candidate, ten in-depth issue areas allow readers to delve into important topics bearing on their choice on Election Day. The site also curates video, books, documentaries and more while offering links to investigative tools, journalism prizes and more.
