On the Road

Missed the 2014 New York Watchdog Workshop? We’ve got you covered.

IRE last week brought its popular Watchdog Workshop series to the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. Nearly 250 people attended the event, which included two extra tracks focused on financial and data journalism.

The financial sessions focused on tools to investigate stocks and commodities, hedge funds and more, with speakers from Bloomberg, Reuters, the Times and the Journal. The data track included information on visualization, cybersecurity, storytelling and more, with additional speakers from organizations including ESPN, WNYC and more.

Throughout the two-day event, attendees shared quotes, tips and notes on Twitter using #watchdogworkshop.

Walt Bogdanich, an assistant editor for investigations at The New York Times, discussed the art of the investigative interview.

 

 

David Barstow, a senior writer for The New York Times and three-time Pulitzer Prize winner, talked about the investigative reporter’s mindset.

 

 

Bloomberg News’ Bob Ivry was one of three panelists to discuss the Wall Street beat.

 

 

 

Want even more? Lam Thuy Vo and Joanna Kao, of Al Jazeera America, created a public Google Doc to share their detailed notes from the sessions.

 

 

We’re in the process of uploading workshop tipsheets, presentations and audio files. Speakers can send handouts to tipsheets@ire.org
