Center for Public Integrity Teams Up with American Public Media, Public Insight Network

Integrity is making a comeback in journalism: The Center for Public Integrity added to its flurry of recent announcements the news that it entered into a partnership with American Public Media and its Public Insight Network, which allows journalists to share observations, insights, and experience.

The Center for Public Integrity announced Thursday that it will refocus on digital, aiming to generate more accountability reporting, new audiences, and earned revenues in the digital marketplace, as well as revamping its Web site, expanding its newsroom, and launching a new digital delivery system.

The organization received a $1.7 million grant earlier this month from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and the Huffington Post Investigative Fund agreed to become part of the Center for Public Integrity, also earlier this month.

ProPublica and the Center for Investigative Reporting are also part of the partnership with APM.

APM director of network journalism and innovation Linda Fantin said:

We’re thrilled to add the Center for Public Integrity as a partner, and to be working with (executive director) Bill Buzenberg again. The Center has a 20-year history of holding powerful people and institutions transparent and accountable, and now the Public Insight Network, with its ever-expanding number of newsrooms and citizen sources, will have a pipeline for doing the same.

Buzenberg added:

I’m thrilled that the Center can now be a part of this incredible resource and help grow the possibilities it holds on journalism’s newest digital frontier.
