Shovel-Ready Stimulus Reporting

Tags: Politics, U.S., Media, stimulus bill,

In our continuous search for helpful reporting on the stimulus package, we’ve discovered ShovelWatch, a joint effort by investigative news organization ProPublica, morning news program The Takeaway, and New York public radio station WNYC.  This highly-recommended website features accessible, detailed, and down-to-earth information on the most relevant components of the stimulus, including a state-by-state spending breakdown, a detailed list of stimulus provisions, and an interactive U.S. map that shows how infrastructure money will be dispersed.  Also includes a handy aggregate of updated reporting on the stimulus from around the web.  The website is still evolving, so check back regularly to watch where the money goes.

I,m curious. WNYC,ProPublica, The Takeaway and Shovelwatch-- are any of these groups affiliated with a political party or are they completely "independent"?
