Online Newspaper Takes on Hawaii’s Political Elite

By

Published July 04, 2011 | FoxNews.com

Malia Zimmerman has never been afraid to take on the political establishment in Hawaii.

She took on the former governor after she was fired from her journalism job — saying her employer was pressured by the governor to fire her. She exposed political corruption and refused to hand over sources. And she constantly takes on Hawaii’s notoriously tight-knit  business and political elite.

Her site, the Hawaii Reporter, is one of the few investigative online newspapers that digs deep into local issues and politics –and that has gained her national attention.

On March 14, 2006 the Ka Loko Dam, on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, was breached – unleashing 400 million gallons of water, destroying everything in its path, and taking the lives of 8 people. After months of investigating, Zimmerman helped expose the government’s failure on many levels to prevent the disaster.
