Data in the Investigative Newsroom

Jeff Larson, Jeremy Singer-Vine

Databite No. 21

Jeff Larson (Data Editor, ProPublica) and Jeremy Singer-Vine (Data Editor, BuzzFeed) on Data in the Investigative Newsroom:

“Join us for a discussion about the various ways that newsrooms use data and data-analysis in their reporting, with a special focus on data-driven investigations. Jeff and Jeremy discuss their general approaches, present a few specific projects, and then open up for Q&A.

Some potential topics of discussion: What types of analysis work best in newsrooms? How does that compare to other disciplines? What are the major data-related challenges currently facing newsrooms? How might journalists more effectively collaborate with data experts in other fields?”
