Watchdog Round-Up ‘Round the Nation

The Rio Grande Foundation’s New Mexico Watchdog, though it stands on its own, is part of a national network of Watchdog investigative reporting projects in other states. Jim Scarantino, who edits and reports for New Mexico Watchdog, is a former attorney. The Watchdogs in other states are run by veteran journalists, accountants, and policy analysts. For an idea of how large and impressive this effort is, read our “Watchdog Roundup.”
