The Nieman Watchdog Journalism Project at Harvard University is concerned with helping “the press ask penetrating questions, critical questions, questions that matter, questions not yet asked about today’s news.” It’s a very laudable mission, and for anyone concerned with these matters, their website will be one worth returning to numerous times. Along the top of the homepage, visitors can investigate sections that include “Ask This”, “Showcase”, “Commentary”, and “Discussions”. In the “Showcase” area, visitors can learn about their online tools for journalists (such as “The History Commons”), take a look at recent Nieman reports, and read some self-reflective works on the future of investigative reporting. “Ask This” raises a number of timely questions, including tax reform, debt problems, and nuclear weapons. Lastly, the “Blog” area offers up expert opinion and editorial pieces from Nieman staffers and affiliates, and the pieces here address everything from civil liberties to the world of talk-show hosts.
