Too many journalists and activists chase flashy headlines or juicy gossip to generate clicks. But at Empower Oversight, we focus on digging into the details to get the whole story. That might not make the front page as often, but when it comes time to speak out, research pays off in the end. Vetting and corroborating tips takes time and hard work. It isn’t always sexy, but it is the only way to sort out which leads to follow.

There is no shortage of taxpayer waste and corporate fraud to pursue. Our goal is to find those extraordinary cases that make a difference. Empower Oversight takes the time to research tips that traditional media and watchdog groups might ignore. When the facts are there, we will work to ensure they cannot be ignored any longer.
