Investigating Power is a history of breakthrough investigations that revealed news and changed the national narrative on many major topics since the 1950s, from war to health to civil rights. Through interviews, career timelines and videos that use historic images, you'll learn about the issues and the journalists who fought to bring these stories to the American public. Originally launched in 2011, the website was redesigned and expanded to include educator curriculum resources in 2018.
