Undercover Reporting

This rather fine website, a collaboration with New York University Libraries, complements the recent publication of "Undercover Reporting: The Truth About Deception." This work argues that "much of the valuable journalism since before the U.S. Civil War has emerged from investigations that employed subterfuge to expose wrong." The fascinating material here has been gathered into clusters, highlighting award-winning series, exemplary proponents of the practice, or recurring themes, including prison infiltrations, shadowing migrants, work, and gender, class, or ethnic impersonation, and dozens more. The stories here include the Chiquita Banana expose from the Cincinnati Enquirer, a close look into the world of nursing homes, and several classic pieces of reportage from the Depression on the plight of people thrown into poverty. Visitors can use the Browse tab to get started, and additional instruction can be found under the How to Use area.
