This question is inspired by the following article:

""Being basically a one-man editorial operation, Carey did end up having to hire an outside fact-checker to make sure he got everything right in the Xethanol story.He { Christopher Carey } told me he relies on an ad hoc group of “amateur stock detectives” who he could convert into a citizen journalism crew to help his cause ..... “I’ve been swapping information for more than five years with a global network of amateur stock detectives,” Carey said. “They’re great at sifting through SEC filings, digging up documents, connecting dots and developing timelines to explain the trajectories of particular companies. I’m convinced that many of them could produce journalism-quality pieces with the help of a strong editor. I think ‘citizen journalism’ that is based on documents or irrefutable visual evidence stands the best chance of winning public acceptance.”"

The Motley Fool discussion boards, perhaps?

What, you thought it was going to be free?

I think it is like some kind of online investment club, where members help each other with research .

Most likely free ?

An "ad hoc" group implies that it is not an online investment club. He's a business reporter, so it's almost certainly going to be sources he has cultivated.
