Summary
This journalism master's project includes a professional work component and a research component. The professional work component details the author's experiences working at the Center for Public Integrity, a non-profit, non-partisan organization of investigative reporters. The author's main assignment was the State Secrets project, an investigation of soft money political contributions at the state level in all 50 states. Field notes and samples of work are included. In the research component the author examines "how investigative journalists have actually used the FOIA [Freedom of Information Act] to bring important information to the public's attention and the factors that influence the use of the FOIA as a journalistic tool ... [and] how the use of the FOIA has changed since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks ..." (p. 4) This section includes a literature review
