Campaign investments helped launch APM Reports, a national investigative reporting group that digs deep to explore important, high-impact issues that are often shrouded from public view. MPR and APM have long been pioneers and leaders in investigative journalism. Today APM Reports is delivering important journalism and collaborating across the country with other news organizations.
