Propublica offers a fascinating look at police use of force during recent protests

Not all journalistic quality comes from newspapers, networks, and cable.

A good example of quality journalism is Propublica.

Based in New York City, Propublica specializes in long-form investigative reporting.

Analysts give it high marks for factual reporting: https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/propublica/

They also say it has a moderate left-center bias. The organization, which has won four Pulitzer prizes since 2010 does in-depth reporting quickly. Today, their website features a number of compelling topics, but the one I want to call to your attention is the organization’s analysis of police conduct during the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests.

This is good work, by any measure. It has been done well in a hurry and provides some balance. It’s not slapped together on the fly. Propublica’s journalism avoids hit pieces and offers readers substantive, issue-oriented reporting,

Not every topic is as interesting as this one, but if you’re interested in social justice and COVID-19 and abuses of power, you’ll find it of value.

I’m not big on giving advice, but this is an organization I recommend.
