Exposing the Dark Influence of Money in Politics

Sludge will investigate the shadowy ways that special interests have captured America’s political system, revealing hidden networks and conflicts of interest.

Sludge runs on Civil.

Civil is a self-governing marketplace that powers a free and sustainable press, while taking advertisers and other third parties out of the equation. Its platform supports independently run newsrooms focused on producing local, investigative and policy journalism.

Civil’s blockchain-based model enables a more direct, transparent connection between Citizens and Newsmakers and strengthens protections for journalists against censorship and intellectual property disputes.
