skb-Corporate Accountability Research

Investigative journalism is not just about uncovering truths; it's also about holding entities accountable for their actions. This is particularly important when it comes to large corporations, which may engage in legal violations affecting environmental, health, and safety standards. Using tools like Violation Tracker, journalists and concerned citizens can research these violations and bring them to the public's attention, playing a crucial role in corporate accountability and consumer awareness.

Your Task:

  1. Choose a Company: Select a corporation you frequently use or are interested in.

  2. Use Violation Tracker: Research the company on Violation Tracker to find any legal violations.

  3. Focus on a Specific Issue: Identify one significant violation or issue that stands out.

  4. Investigative Report Plan: Outline how you would conduct further investigative journalism on this issue. Include methods for gathering more information, verifying facts, potential sources for deeper insights, and how you would share your findings with the public.
