WhoWhatWhy.com was started by award-winning investigative journalist Russ Baker after two decades of investigative reporting. He was tired of the cynicism, self-interest, and cowardice that he witnessed in the news media.
WhoWhatWhy embodies a form of investigative reporting that is rigorous, relentless and scientific – we call it forensic journalism.
Forensic journalism requires skepticism towards power and credentialed expertise; a determination to unearth the facts interested parties want to keep hidden; and an unflinching commitment to follow the trail wherever it leads. We are truth seeking-not quote seeking.
