Crowdfunded Journalism
David Placer
I have spent most of my career in Barcelona, uncovering political corruption and organized crime networks - I am also the author of a critical biography of Hugo Chavez, in Spanish.
I am David Placer, a Venezuelan journalist based in Spain. I cover economic news for Economía Digital, scrutinizing Spanish companies and banks and their executives while also investigating the powerful Venezuelan businessmen and politicians of ‘Chavismo’ as Madrid correspondent for Konzapata.com. Previously, I reported for El Periódico de Catalunya, the main newspaper of Barcelona, disclosing social problems in poverty-stricken areas, and covering immigration and gangs. I love to investigate difficult and important issues. That's what journalism is supposed to be.
