Richmond Confidential

The nice folks at Chevron are attempting to buy another election in Northern California, spending millions to defeat a Proposition that would limit the amount of damage Big Oil can do to the environment. Illuminating coverage of the underhanded shenanigans can be found not in any of the area’s large newspapers but in a maverick online portal called “Richmond Confidential.” Call it citizen journalism, call it muckraking, call it concerned constituents digging deep for the truth — what’s happening in Richmond is a snapshot of the zeitgeist: corporate criminals buying what they want while a small group of courageous “little people” fight the power.
