We get the democracy we deserve

Congratulations to Nicole Ki and the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism for the excellent story on the decline of democracy in Wisconsin. The essence of the decline can be traced to Scott Walker’s use of “divide and conquer” style of governance.

The press belongs to you, not the President

The following statement was written by Sue Cross, CEO and executive director of the Institute for Nonprofit News, in response to a call last week from The Boston Globe, to remind readers of the value of America’s free press. The Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism is a founding member of INN, a network of more than 170 independent, nonpartisan and nonprofit news organizations dedicated to strengthening the sources of trusted news for thousands of communities.
