SUPPORTING ESSENTIAL
INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM

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.

APM REPORTS IS AN INVESTIGATIVE GROUP CREATED FOR A NATIONAL AUDIENCE.

  • “Its combination of narrative excellence, surprising discoveries, and ethical rigor result in what may be the best podcast of the year.”

    — The New Yorker, on In the Dark, Season 2
  • “A healthy democracy needs investigative journalism. Without it, the powerful go unchecked and the voiceless have no voice.”

    — Chris Worthington
    Managing Director and Editor-in-Chief at APM Reports
