A corporate campaign to discredit a scientist whose work showed that a commonly used weed killer turned male frogs into females, raising questions about its safety for humans. A 50-state investigation of caretakers who pile on to restrain mentally disabled adults, often where they live, fatally killing these most vulnerable members of society. Accountability in international organizations, from the World Bank to the United Nations, that spend billions with little to no outside oversight.
