9781890871918: Investigative Reporting from Premise to Publication

This book gives readers the confidence they need to handle any investigative reporting assignment and to produce demonstrated results. Its step-by-step progression covering the entire investigative process will help them stay on track to complete stories of any size. The book answers relevant questions such as "Where can I find a story?" "What do I do when a source won't talk?" "How can I find the right documents to support my story?" "How can I present this story online?" and "How can a spreadsheet keep it all from falling apart?"

Investigative Reporting contains full stories and timely examples from both professional and student reporters. Each chapter concludes with sequential "Big Story" assignments to help readers research, write and publish their own investigative stories. Web links to online resources (including public records information, computer-assisted reporting techniques and interactive investigative story examples) will help readers move smoothly and successfully through an investigative story or team reporting project, whether for print, broadcast or the Web.

About the Author:

Marcy Burstiner is an assistant professor of journalism and mass communication at Humboldt State University where she teaches investigative and public affairs reporting. She is a member of Investigative Reporters and Editors, Inc., a board member of the California Collegiate Media Association and the founder of the Center for Campus Investigations, a Web site and clearinghouse for college students interested in doing investigative reporting at their student or community newspapers. She jumped into her professional journalism career as an assistant editor for The Multinational Monitor, a non-profit magazine founded by Ralph Nader. Before joining the faculty at Humboldt State, she was an assistant managing editor for financial magazine The Deal and a senior writer for the online financial newsite TheStreet.com.

Review:

The book succeeds in demystifying investigative reporting, taking readers behind the scenes of investigative stories. The author clearly did her homework; the book is packed with examples from historical and recent investigations. [It] is an impressive and much-needed resource for students and journalists interested in investigative reporting. --Rachele Kanigel, San Francisco State University

This is the best text on investigative reporting that I have seen. . . . It is a nice bridge from old-style investigations into an era of new tools and techniques --Dave Poulson, Michigan State University
