After eight years, the Nieman Watchdog blog will end its run and the Nieman Watchdog Project (which launched in 1996) will take on a new direction.
The Watchdog Project has been focused on examining and invigorating journalism in its fundamental role of serving the public interest.
Past articles from the blog will continue to be accessible online, Nieman Watchdog: Questions the press should ask.
Going forward, new articles about watchdog journalism will be published in Nieman Reports.
Other changes to the project have to do with inviting watchdog journalists to study at Harvard as part of the Murrey Marder Nieman Fellowship.
