Managing editor, TYT Investigates
Welcome to TYT Investigates, launched by The Young Turks to do the kind of original, enterprise, investigative journalism that implicates policy issues too often ignored by national media.
Our reporting won’t shy from naming the corporate CEOs who push for economic policies that benefit them. We won’t go after a generic “Congress” when there’s a specific member of Congress responsible.
We want you to have the information you need for holding those in power responsible. Not to shame or doxx or harass them—but to make them publicly accountable for the human toll of the policies they push. Our goal is to raise questions for which better popular understanding of policy is the answer. You can help by telling people about the stories we break—so that more and more people get the facts we need to make things better, and more and more people are engaging in the informed, substantive debates we need to get there.
So, thanks for being here, reading this. We’ve posted some of the earlier work by members of our reporting team for you to check out. Today, we’ll be breaking our first TYT Investigates story about two of America’s biggest corporations … and the number one thing America’s corporations want more than anything right now. So follow us on Twitter and Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube channel to make sure you don’t miss or any of the other exclusive stories already in the pipeline.
Because we can’t use facts to win the argument, until we use them to change the conversation.
