“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” 

- Benjamin Franklin

Watchdog.org is a collection of independent journalists covering state-specific and local government activity. The program began in September 2009, a project of Franklin Center for Government & Public Integrity, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting new media journalism.

Our established investigative journalists and capitol news reporters across the country are doing what legacy journalism outlets prove unable to do: share information, dive deep into investigations, and provide the fourth estate that has begun to fade in recent decades. By enhancing communication between reporters and providing a forum for published journalism, Watchdog.org promotes a vibrant, well-informed electorate and a more transparent government.

Watchdog.org utilizes a state-specific approach, in order to provide readers with information that is of proximate and practical interest. Interested parties can contact info@watchdog.org for more information.

    The house ethics committee already did, and found nothing there. Michelle Bachmann’s investigation keeps growing though. Pay attention please.

    I agree with a few ideas presented here (illegal immigration-border) but the blanket Dem vs. Repub stance turns me off. My belief is that the majority of American voters do not toe the party line for either party. This site toes the Repub. line. Why no middle ground? Anyone on any site (lib-conserv) that isn’t supported by political interests?
