The Center for Media and Democracy is a national media group that conducts in-depth investigations into corruption and the undue influence of corporations on media and democracy.
CMD's reporting and investigations are credible, reliable, and powerful because they are focused on documentation and the impact of policies on ordinary people, not based on PR claims. The findings of CMD's investigative journalism are regularly cited by the leading national and state newspapers in the U.S., including the New York Times, the Guardian, and the Washington Post. CMD's reporting is credited by news shows on major broadcast stations including HBO, Showtime, PBS, NBC, CBS, and others, and has also been featured on in-depth news programs, such as Moyers & Company, Democracy Now, and the Thom Hartmann Show, as well as NPR and other public broadcasting agencies, such as the BBC and CBC.
CMD also publishes the online news journal, PRWatch; a specialized encyclopedia about corporations, their CEOs, and corporate-funded front groups, SourceWatch; a clearinghouse for news about ALEC and its award-winning investigation, ALECexposed.org; and other specialized investigative websites, like ALECclimatedenial.org.
CMD has assembled a top-notch team that combines extraordinary research capacity with the ability to break stories, translating complex documentary evidence and policy issues into powerful narratives, along with smart analysis, engaging language, and compelling graphics. CMD also has in-house counsel to back up its investigative efforts and a talented project management team that can process a mountain of information and deliver excellent and timely special reports.
