Subsidyscope Posts Moving to Real Time Investigations


With today’s report by Sarah Dorsey on troubles at several Federal Home Loan Banks, the Sunlight team assigned to the Subsidyscope project begins posting to Real Time Investigations. It should be a good fit: Bill Allison and Anupama Narayanswamy have made Real Time the place to go for cogent reporting on earmarks, lobbying and other matters that tend to escape the mainstream media’s attention. Like Bill and Anu, the Subsidyscope staff at Sunlight makes frequent use of the Freedom of Information Act, routinely slogs through government data and tries to coax stories from the numbers. Look for regular posts over the next couple of years as we explore federal spending and tax policy in categories such as transportation and energy.
