Carolina Journal is a pioneer in nonprofit journalism, having published hundreds of articles on politics, education, health care, regulations, crime, taxes, and other issues since its founding in 1991. CJ, with a statewide print circulation of more than 45,000, covers state government and the General Assembly, including not only news and investigative stories but also commentary and analysis.
CJ also 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. It also has exposed malfeasance on the part of economic developers and nonprofits that receive state and federal funds.
The print Carolina Journal is augmented by Carolina Journal Online, which offers daily news, commentary, and analysis of North Carolina politics and policy, and Carolina Journal Radio, which provides an hour-long newsmagazine broadcast each weekend in more than a dozen markets across the state.
CJ reporters and editors are active on a host of social media outlets, including Facebook, Twitter, and the John Locke Foundation’s statewide Locker Room blog.
