From prisons to protests, immigration to the environment, Peabody Award-winning Reveal goes deep into the pressing issues of our times. The Atlantic says “the experience of each episode is akin to a spoonful of sugar, even when it’s telling a story about Richard Spencer’s cotton farms or a man’s final days as a heroin addict.” Reveal is a project of The Center for Investigative Reporting and is co-produced with PRX. The show is hosted by Al Letson and partners with reporters and newsrooms around the world, including The Washington Post, ProPublica, APM, The Marshall Project and The Investigative Fund. Reveal is a Pulitzer Prize finalist and has won many broadcast journalism awards, including a duPont and three national Emmys.

Be true to journalism

I really like your show, I just don’t like the political point of view, because as a show that points out problems with politics you take a side, and I don’t feel that this is true journalism. In my mind it is supposed to be a bipartisan job. Your job is to point out all leaders and their bad jobs not just one leader of one bad job. They all have done bad and it should show.

I can add more stars to see if my review gets any attention. Give everyone a voice!
