ShovelWatch Watches the Watchmen

by Andrew Price

March 6, 2009
The investigative journalism nonprofit Pro Publica, NPR's "The Takeaway," and WNYC have teamed up to launch the new site ShovelWatch.org. The site promises to "[track] the stimulus from bill to building."I was pretty excited about Recovery.gov, but I have to say, ShovelWatch looks like the better resource. Check out this curious piece, on how an early Maryland infrastructure contract went to a company helmed by a big Republican donor.Or this radio report on the shortcomings of Recovery.gov itself.It's great we have what seems to be one of the most transparent governments in history. And even better there are still media resources to keep them honest.
