Despite an increase in controversial government actions under the Obama administration, there has been a marked decline in related independent investigative journalism and congressional oversight. Independent watchdog groups and the new media have risen to fill this “oversight gap.” The panel will discuss areas of opportunity for activist and media watchdogs in the second Obama term, including topics such as Fast and Furious, bailout/crony capitalism, and the implementation of Obamacare.
Moderator: Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch. Panelists include Mark Tapscott, Executive Editor, The Washington Examiner; Vince Coglianese, Senior Online Editor, The Daily Caller, and Matthew Boyle, Investigative Journalist, Breitbart News.
