Youtube has launched an investigative news channel called “I files" with help from the Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR). The channel will collect videos from major media outlets such as the New York Times, BBC,  and Al-Jazeera as well as offer a platform for independent content creators.  

CIR Senior Producer Stephen Talbot said in a blog post about the channel

"The main assignment of I Files is to be timely and relevant, to provide an outlet for a citizen journalist who captures an incredible moment on camera, but above all to dig deeper and to present well-reported and engaging stories that offer real information and insights."
