Once largely the domain of reporters in Washington and overseas, covering issues relating to homeland (and national) security is now truly something that reporters in every town in America can - and should - do. From domestic terrorism and transnational organized crime and drug syndicates to huge government boondoggles in homeland security expenditures to rampant violations of civil liberties, there are a million important stories to do. Panelists will discuss how to mine your locally-based federal agencies and courthouses for great stories, how to find great national and international stories with local connections and how to write about the growing - and controversial - role that private contractors are playing in securing the homeland.
