Carolina Journal is a pioneer in nonprofit journalism, publishing thousands of articles on politics, education, health care, regulations, taxes, and other issues since its founding in 1991. In addition to news, CJ offers readers in-depth investigative stories, polling, cartoons, commentary, video interviews, and analysis.

Our newly revamped website covers North Carolina politics and policy daily. Over the last year, Carolina Journal Online served more than 500,000 unique visitors. In addition, Carolina Journal’s print edition has a statewide print circulation of more than 40,000. To serve independent community newspapers, CJ Newswire distributes free content to media outlets across North Carolina, serving more than 300,000 readers in an average month. Nearly 60 local newspapers regularly run CJ stories in print or online. According to a recent survey by an independent consulting firm, Carolina Journal is read by about three-quarters of North Carolina’s “influentials” — politicians, government staffers, lobbyists, CEOs, journalists, civic leaders, and political activists.

CJ reporters and editors contribute weekly to radio and television news programs across the state and have a solid social media presence, offering up-to-the-minute news and analysis. 

CJ is a leader in investigative journalism in North Carolina. It has exposed corruption, conflicts of interest, and misuse of public funds by public officials, including members of Congress and members of the North Carolina General Assembly. Through our regular podcast, Extreme Injustice, CJ has exposed political schemes and misguided policies threatening North Carolinian’s fundamental rights.
