As a public service, IRE is making the new issue of The IRE Journal magazine available for free to journalists, educators, students and the general public. The special issue of the quarterly magazine is full of practical tips, resources and strategies for covering a new presidential administration that’s openly hostile to the news media.
Typically, the quarterly magazine is available only to IRE members and subscribers.
"This issue is too special to keep behind our paywall," IRE Executive Director Doug Haddix said. "New threats against journalists and against freedom of information have raised the stakes not only for reporters but for the foundation of our democracy itself. All journalists -- not just IRE members -- can benefit from the thought-provoking coverage in this issue of our magazine."
In addition to the special Trump coverage, the magazine features winners and finalists in the prestigious IRE Awards -- recognizing the best investigative reporting of 2016.
“Journalists and the public alike can celebrate the remarkable work produced last year,” Haddix said. “IRE Award winners and finalists show the enduring value of watchdog stories that make a huge positive difference in communities across America and around the globe.”
