Local Newspaper Column Focuses on Transparency


In this segment of Making Democracy Work, Leslie Carrier talks with newspaper reporter, Amos Bridges, about his News-Leader column, The Watchdog Report.

The Watchdog Report has existed for nearly a year.  In it, the News-Leader answers readers' questions about a variety of issues.

Bridges says, in answering them, he "tries to highlight areas where readers can do their own research" and "how they can find public records."

Some sources he uses for information include Case Net and the City of Springfield's and Greene County's websites, he says.
