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.

I knew I was part of the problem when I came face to face with hundreds of people, most of them soaking wet and standing in lines that stretched out of view, waiting to get care in animal stalls. That was the day I made a personal commitment to change my life—and to change the status quo.  Read my story From Epiphany to Advocacy.

Friends, I have a major announcement to share with you. Today, I launch Tarbell.org, a reader-funded journalism platform to hold the rich accountable and bring transparency to our democracy.

Tarbell is an independent, nonprofit and digital newsroom that details how money in politics impacts laws that affect millions of Americans. We’re as focused on pointing out potential solutions to big problems as we are on revealing how moneyed interests corrupt our democracy. Our namesake and guiding spirit is Ida Minerva Tarbell, one of the most important journalists in American history.

In the coming weeks and months, I will be touring the country to speak directly to people worried about the state of our democracy. And this spring, I will launch a crowdfunding campaign to make Tarbell a thriving, reader-funded hub for accountability journalism.

If you want to join the project, please visit our website. And if you would like to help, please contact me at wendell@tarbell.org.
