Last week we launched our largest, most expansive investigation to date. The “Trouble Behind Bars” series uncovered numerous cases of death, neglect and official misconduct in local jails — all at a great cost to Kentuckians.
It’s just the latest high-impact project from our staff. In the past year, we’ve brought exclusive reports on officials banishing a mentally ill man to Florida and an expose´ on illegal and lopsided state university boards. Our reporters examined gambling revenues, pharmacy fraud, and successfully fought in court for your right to view financial audits that the University of Louisville sought to keep secret.
We are your statewide watchdog. And today, during Louisville Public Media’s fall pledge drive, we are asking for your support.
