The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) recently published a massive leak of documents connected to Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca. The trove of papers has blown open a window on the vast, murky world of shell companies, and has provided an extraordinary look at how the wealthy and powerful conceal their money.
Several McClatchy journalists joined more than 370 journalists from 78 countries in the largest media collaboration ever undertaken following a leak.
