The Muckraker, Northern Ireland, UK

The Muckraker launched in December 2011 as a blog dedicated to holding politicians and public institutions to account. Since then, the site has grown and earned recognition, and describes itself now as “an alternative investigative news site and soon-to-be publisher of The Muckraker Report,” a quarterly magazine that will cover “NI scandal and dirt. Our mission is to hold people in power to account and expose the dark underbelly of Northern Ireland.”
