Project for Excellence in Journalism
A division of the Pew Research Center, the Project for Excellence in Journalism "is dedicated to trying to understand the information revolution. We specialize in using empirical methods to evaluate and study the performance of the press, particularly content analysis. We are non partisan, non ideological and non political." Originally, it was a joint project of the Pew Center and the Graduate School of Journalism, Columbia University, and, for its first nine years, the team had two goals:
- Press evaluation, conducted by PEJ researchers
- Clarifying principles, fell to a group the Project ran, the Committee of Concerned Journalists (CCJ).
