Power Reporting, at one time a leading destination for journalists in need of computer-assisted-reporting resources, is up for grabs.
Founder Bill Dedman, a Pulitzer Prize-winning former Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Boston Globe reporter who’s now at MSNBC.com, is hoping that a university or non-profit will revive the site or take it in a new direction.
