Stinky Journalism

Keywords: North America, Europe, English, Journalism, science methodology, education, free-thinking, debunking, other web resources.

At we advocate for more rigorous – and scientific – journalistic methodology. Methods are objective, not people. From brief reports to continuing investigations, we hold the media accountable by examining concrete, measurable errors of fact and ethical breaches encountered in the press.

Another key mission is education. Our program is targeted at high school and college students, some of whom are interested in careers in journalism and new media, and others who are looking toward academia and private industry. The pursuit that unites them is to better understand how news is made, how it informs the world around them and how they, in turn, can inform the media. The program will include a curriculum guide and a blog for students to publish case studies on specific efforts to get corrections in the press.”
