Michigan Capitol Confidential’s Top 10 stories of the year as measured by views

Michigan Capitol Confidential saw significant change this year with Tom Gantert, longtime managing editor, leaving to work at a national news site.

James David Dickson, the new managing editor, was hired in May. Dickson previously worked for The Detroit News and hit the ground running at CapCon. His focus is for CapCon to become the watchdog of Michigan’s government and ensuring that it serves the people with transparency and accountability.

CapCon has covered important topics exposing corruption, government ineptness and frivolous spending of taxpayer dollars. It informed readers of important information and data regarding COVID-19 and school district’s curriculum and staff trainings.

In 2022 CapCon has been seen on Fox News, and its stories have been covered by The Hill, The Big Show with Michael Patrick Shiels, Steve Gruber, and WJR News Talk 760 in Detroit.
