** For this class, it is required you keep informed of current events in state and national politics. While staying informed, you will want to identify when and how reporters access public documents and interviews -- and explore how they use these documents and interviews to best inform their readers.
To stay up to date, start by following these outlets, which specialize in investigative reporting, on Twitter: Center for Public Integrity, Frontline, Investigative Reporters and Editors, Mother Jones, ProPublica, Reveal (Center for Investigative Reporting). Please share if you find others that pique your interest, as well.
Also, these web sites and handles can be great resources for you:
* FOIA Mapper | * The FOIA Project
* National Freedom of Information Coalition
* New England First Amendment Coalition
And, check out The Black Vault... for fun, (albeit a nerdy journalist kind of fun!)
