Introducing Tarbell

Tarbell is an independent, nonprofit and digital newsroom that details how money in politics impacts laws that affect millions of Americans.

But it doesn’t stop there. We’re as focused on pointing out potential solutions to big problems as we are on revealing how moneyed interests corrupt our democracy.

The rich control politics. Journalism can reel them in.
