Mission

The Austin Bulldog is a nonprofit independent online news site for investigative reporting in the public interest. The Austin Bulldog is dedicated to hard-nosed journalism covering topics that matter. Our primary focus is almost entirely on what’s happening in our hometown, the city of Austin, Texas, although we will occasionally cover important stories on the outskirts. We will investigate matters involving government, media, politics, and anything else warranting close scrutiny that’s within our resources. We will strive to be an important source of news on the topics we cover. The Austin Bulldog is nonprofit, nonpartisan and non-advocacy. We will question authority. We will go where the facts lead us and report accordingly. We set high standards for our reporting. It must be accurate. It must be factual. It must be fair. We adhere to the  Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics(http://www.spj.org/ethicscode.asp) . We seek to advance the cause of democracy, freedom of information and open government.

While progress has resulted in significant governmental reforms by the agencies investigated our growth as an organization capable of more far reaching investigations and involving more government agencies has been hamstrung by a lack of fundraising to move the organization toward sustainability.
