We are the first nonprofit investigative newsroom in the German-speaking world. Our goal is to give citizens access to information.
We are one of the many answers to the media crisis. The old models of business are losing effectiveness. At the same time, journalists need to find better ways of explaining an increasingly complex world. Publishers are shutting down newspapers or cutting their budgets. Digital media has not been able to make up for this loss. The media has trouble fulfilling its watchdog role. CORRECT!V aims to change this: we want to make investigative and informative journalism affordable and accessible to media organizations throughout Germany.
For this reason, CORRECT!V is also initiating an education program to pass on the methods of investigative journalism. This can help empower citizens to gain access to information and promote transparency.
