From Ukraine to the U.S. government, Public Integrity journalists fight for open records
By Dave Levinthal

Public Integrity’s aggressive approach to obtaining documents and data the government doesn’t want you to see — spearheaded by attorney and research editor Peter Newbatt Smith — is a cornerstone of our investigative journalism. Consider that when it comes to filing FOIA lawsuits, Public Integrity ranks near the top of all U.S. news organizations, including those exponentially larger than our nonprofit newsroom of 27 journalists. (Only the New York Times and journalist Jason Leopold, now of BuzzFeed News, have filed more since 2001, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University.)
