Description

iMediaEthics is a small, not-for-profit, non-partisan international media ethics news site. Our investigation into the New York chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists required significant resources from our small team as we sought information about the club's finances with little cooperation from the subjects of our story. Through dozens of interviews, hundreds of hours of research, FOIA requests and persistence over months of reporting, we discovered improper bookkeeping practices and the non-compliance of annual IRS filings of the club and the foundation. Our investigation led to the club's national headquarters to alert and better monitor all clubs' finances, not just the Deadline Club in the New York City area, to make sure they file their IRS tax forms annually to not lose their non-profit status.
