This session will cover the methodology used to research individual journalists imprisoned overseas including the use of social media to find and interview the colleagues and families of prisoners. Both the methodology and the social media tools can be easily adapted to report on other subjects outside of the United States without leaving the country. This session, which includes the perspective of a formerly imprisoned reporter, also will address the reasons why every journalist should consider investigating issues of press freedom around the world.
