Launched in 2009, the Nebraska Watchdog is a news website “dedicated to investigative and political reporting.” It is affiliated and funded in part by the Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity and Pete Ricketts, founder of Drakon LLC, an asset management firm. The Franklin Center seeks to “investigate and inform the public about waste, fraud, abuse, ethical questions and safety concerns involving the use of taxpayer dollars,” and was launched with the help of the Sam Adams Alliance, a free-market think tank.
