An INN collaboration found shocking safety breaches and close calls at local, regional and major airports throughout the country.
The Investigative News Network facilitates editorial collaborations among its members. INN's strength is in its ability to not only produce localized stories that have national importance, but also to provide the public with on-going reporting across broadcast and the web that will continue to evolve as this story does.
If you have a story you would like to propose as a collaboration, or if you have content to share with the network, please email Engagement Manager Jessica Plautz.
INN has facilitated five major collaborations:
Sexual Assault on Campus: A Frustrating Search for Justice
Starting in February 2009, the Center for Public Integrity fielded a team of reporters and researchers to lift the curtain on how colleges and universities respond to reports of sexual assault.
Aviation Database Reveals Frequent Safety Problems at Airports
A six-month examination of more than 150,000 reports filed by pilots and others in the aviation industry over the past 20 years reveals surprising and sometimes shocking safety breaches and close calls at local, regional and major airports throughout the country.
Deadly Patrols: Abuses of Civilians by U.S. Border Patrol Agents
This series is the result of a months-long collaboration among the newsrooms, which shared documents, reporting and interviews. The multi-platform collaborative project, coordinated by INN, is an ambitious journalistic effort to document allegations of mistreatment and investigate every death involving border agents. Reporters found that the number of fatal incidents is growing even as both assaults on Border Patrol agents and the number of immigrants attempting to cross the border illegally is in decline.
Wasted Places: EPA Program Falls Short in Toxic Site Cleanups
Wasted Places is a collaborative investigation by six nonprofit newsrooms into federal and state programs designed to cleanup and redevelop polluted tracts known as "brownfields." The project was coordinated by the Investigative News Network, and reported and written by the Connecticut Health Investigative Team, City Limits, Iowa Center for Public Affairs Journalism, the New England Center for Investigative Reporting, the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism and INN.
Big Political Donors Give Far and Wide, Influence Out-of-State Races and Issues
an analysis by the Investigative News Network of contributions by wealthy individuals in seven states shows that their giving is greater than any one cause or race reveals -- with millions flowing into state, federal and even local campaigns, parties and committees far and wide.
