About

Reporting what the President and Congress do, not what they say.

DCReport is a unique, nonprofit news service that reports what the President and Congress DO, not what they SAY. We are founded on core investigative journalism principles of research, fact-checking, and reporting in plain English how you and your family are affected by what happens in Washington, D.C.

DCReport will alert you when laws, rules, or policies change – and we’ll tell you beforehand when possible. We will show you how to exercise your Constitutional rights to challenge changes detrimental to your rights and protections as citizens, consumers, workers, investors, and voters.

We will never tell you what to do; we will equip you with hard facts so you can decide. We will show you how to make your voice heard despite official barriers to citizen involvement in decisions by our government.

DCReport’s founder and editor is Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston, author of seven books including The Making of Donald Trump, and most recently, It’s Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration is Doing to AmericaHis reporting persuaded two presidents to change their tax policies, stopped tax dodges that Congress valued at more than $250 billion in the first decade alone, and promoted the passage of many federal and state laws and regulations that continue to protect people. The Washington Monthly calls David “one of America’s most important journalists.”

DCReport remains steadfastly neutral and uncompromised because we accept no advertising and never sell, rent, or share any information about our readers and subscribers. We rely solely on your tax-deductible contributions to continue our work.
