What happens when a reporter investigates a beloved institution, a popular non-profit or a group of do-gooders? How does the community – both real and virtual – respond?
Edgar A. Poe award winner Megan Twohey and Pulitzer Prize winner Sarah Ganim will talk about the pressures, difficulties and rewards of investigating sacred cows. Among the topics: How to find and report these stories, what to expect after you publish and how to deal with personal and professional attacks.
