The Securities and Exchange Commission requires all public companies (except foreign companies and companies with less than $10 million in assets and 500 shareholders) to file registration statements, periodic reports, and other forms. Those forms, which can be used as the basis for news stories, can be accessed online at: www.sec.gov/edgar.shtml

In addition, press releases issued by the SEC about its enforcement actions can be found at: www.sec.gov/news/press.shtml 

Press releases issued by corporations can be used as the basis for newswriting exercises, as long as you are able to separate the fact from the public relations hogwash. Here are a few web sites where such releases, including quarterly earnings reports, can be found:
