Niemans in the News

Veteran Nieman journalists featured on new website

Investigating Power, a new multimedia website that features the work of 26 leading journalists who have exposed abuses of power in contemporary U.S. history, profiles several Nieman Fellows. Those interviewed include John Carroll, NF ’72; former Nieman curator Bill Kovach, NF ’89; founder of the Nieman Watchdog Project Murrey Marder, NF ’50; Morton Mintz, NF ’64; Gene Roberts, NF ’62; and Nieman Watchdog editor Barry Sussman.

Award-winning investigative reporter Charles Lewis, executive producer of the project, launched the site during an event at the National Press Club on April 25 and moderated a panel discussion with Kovach, Sussman and Dana Priest, national security reporter for The Washington Post. The Investigating Power website is produced by American University’s Investigative Reporting Workshop (IRW) and co-sponsored by the Center for Public Integrity and the Fund for Independence in Journalism.
