Officially: “Couldn’t be reached”

Couldn’t be reached” is a new web site that “will highlight instances of officials not commenting to journalists on the record.”

The Center for Public Integrity, which runs the site, explains:

It will focus on the institutions and people in power — both private and public — who refuse to comment on the record on stories in the public interest. It will be nonpartisan and apply the same high standards to its postings at the Center applies to its investigative reporting.

This is a growing collection of data about a lack of data. We may, as some claim, be living in the Age of Big Data, but we are simultaneously living in the Age of Zip Data.

Initially, the site is US-centric. We hope it will become international.
