ProPublica is an independent, non-profit newsroom that produces investigative journalism in the public interest. Its investigations are conducted by its staff of full-time investigative reporters, and the resulting stories are distributed to news partners for publication or broadcast. In some cases, reporters from both ProPublica and its partners work together on a story.
