Nieman Reports: 21st Century Muckrakers

04.16.08 | 1 min read | Text by Steven Aftergood

The latest edition of Nieman Reports, the quarterly magazine of the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard, is devoted to the subject of “21st Century Muckrakers: Who Are They? How Do They Do Their Work?”

It’s a meaty and highly readable issue. I contributed a piece on “Secrecy vs. Citizenship.” Ted Gup, author of the recent book “Nation of Secrets,” has another piece on “Investigative Reporting About Secrecy.” Walter Pincus of the Washington Post wrote “Secrets and the Press,” a review of the Gup book. And there’s a lot more.
