FN Block Journalism with Receipts

We aim to deliver original long-form investigative journalism that actually matters. Though focused on national security/political/legal matters, we will never turn a blind eye to reporting that could make an impact. Every investigative report that we produce will include hard evidence. Evidence that one could hold in their hands. Bank records, notes, documents, flight logs, corporate filings, pictures, etc. At Forensic News, we believe that the world of investigative journalism needs to join the 21st century and fully use hard data to produce stories that hold truth to power.
