We do not work alone and are not in competition with each other.
Our focus is on those topics that have particular relevance for the lives of our readers.
We identify ourselves to our interlocutors as researchers and journalists from The GCRI and only conduct investigations undercover in exceptional cases.
We are journalistic enlighteners; we go straight to the heart of the problem and are skeptical of those in power.
Preliminary remarks on the acceptance of donations: Our greatest asset is our independence and our credibility. We will be viewed as credible when we also hold ourselves to the same standards that we critically apply to others journalistically. We recognize that the public’s ethical and moral standards are much higher for a not-for-profit undertaking like ours than for commercial projects. Consequently: we publicly disclose donation amounts and contributions over $1000, along with their respective donors and contributors, in a timely manner. We do not accept contributions and donations from sponsors who do not agree to these conditions. Anonymous contributions are publicly disclosed as such.
We are generally interested in publishing our investigations in cooperation with other media outlets.
We do not see our work as being in competition with, but rather as a supplement to, the work of established media outlets.
