As digital news outlets have increased in numbers, nonprofit news organizations have surfaced online as exemplars of high-quality investigative reporting. The Marshall Project, which began publishing in mid-2014, will serve as another source for digital news, covering the U.S. criminal justice system. Its publisher, Neil Barsky, a former Wall Street Journal reporter and director of the film KOCH, stated in an interview with Neiman Journalism Lab, "A nonprofit organization has to sustain itself by being excellent and having an impact. So does for-profit, frankly. But the difference is there are people of good will out there who are willing to support us if we do great work."
