#MuckReads = #MustReads

Can’t believe I just discovered this: ProPublica has been curating the best of watchdog journalism, via the Twitter hashtag #MuckReads.

This is the kind of journalism I love to read. It’s not good for your blood pressure, or for your view of humanity. But it’s the kind of journalism that’s essential in mobilizing people to tear down the status quo, reinvent, and rebuild.

The best #MuckReads of this week include stories about the poisonous legacy of factories, the degree to which the derivatives industry is putting a fierce smackdown on regulators, and (yes!) snow plow corruption in Montreal.

Time to get deep into the muck and start spreading it around.
