Last week we launched a number of improvements to features across the site, plus more work to make it easier to contribute by booting up MuckRock locally.
A year ago today, the Central Intelligence Agency’s CREST database - its public archive of over 13 million pages of declassified material - became public in more than name only when it was published online as a result of our three-year lawsuit. Since that time, we’ve written nearly 200 articles sourced from the archives, on everything from clandestine bowling leagues to the Agency’s private press pool. As we enter the second year of the project, we asking for your help in unearthing our hidden history.
Last week we didn’t launch any new user-facing features, but we’re almost ready to share a big one. Please us know if you have piles of PDFs that need analyzing.
It’s not well-known how your town invests your dollars in the stock market and other funds. Join us in pulling together this information from all over the country.
If you find yourself reflecting, this holiday season, upon the trials of those less fortunate than yourself, please consider taking a simple step toward bringing those circumstances to the fore by submitting a suggestion to one of MuckRock’s crowdsourced investigations.
