What’s more powerful than a great investigation? A great investigation that also takes away excuses — by showing how others are doing better. A solutions component can add big impact and engagement to an investigative series. In this panel, investigative reporters will show how they bolstered their investigations of local wrongdoing by adding stories about other places doing better. And they’ll teach techniques for writing solutions stories with the same rigor and heft as the rest of the series.
