Forum for Media and Literature, India
Forum for Media and Literature is a non-profit organisation engaging in investigative journalism and publishes its investigations on a web portal (www.cobrapost.com). Over the past decade and a half, Cobrapost has gained a formidable reputation for its fearless muckraking. Any announcement from Cobrapost.com sets off a viral speculation even before the story is broadcast. The investigations cover the entire spectrum from political corruption, corporate malpractice, religious misconduct, and social crimes. These are stories that often break the code of omerta and are thus never covered by mainstream media. The investigations have invariably forced a public discourse that in turn has affected a change in several public policies.
