Investigative reporting is a lot more than databases, public-records searches and secret meetings with deep-throat tipsters. Great investigative stories come from reporters who know how to think, how to recognize a potential story, how to pursue it, what questions to ask, where to go for information and what to do when you run into roadblocks. This class will NOT teach you how to do online research or use a computer program; it WILL teach you to think like an investigative reporter.
