Quick Facts

aka The Austin Bulldog

Austin, TX

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.
