News sites for watchdog/investigative work

A news librarian on the listserv ‘Newslib’ recently wrote about her newspaper’s watchdog group of reporters, who write about wrongdoing, injustice, and incompetence.  Her paper is the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and they dedicate a web page specifically to work by this group.  She wondered if any other newspapers highlighted their reporters’ investigative work in the same way and called for web addresses. 

Here are some interesting sites, reflecting investigative work only, mostly from newspapers, but one from IRE:

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
