INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM

Empowering the Public

Searchlight New Mexico is a non-partisan, nonprofit news organization dedicated to investigative reporting. In a landscape of shrinking media resources, our mission is to focus high-impact journalism on topics of local, regional and national interest in order to allow the public to see into the remote recesses of government and to expose abuses of power. We believe great reporting empowers people to demand honest, effective public policy and to seek appropriate remedies.

Changing the Landscape

New Mexico has a long history of corruption and poor governance, problems that have dampened economic investment and stunted socioeconomic progress.  Poverty rates and childhood hunger are among the highest in the nation, while economic growth and educational achievement are among the lowest. A vigorous press helps expose how political contributions, lobbying and the exercise of raw power overcome good public policy at the expense of the health, education and economic prosperity of individuals, families and businesses.
