Breaking the big stories

On November 27th, I attended The Canadian Journalism Foundation’s #CJFjtalk on investigative journalism.

Kevin Donovan, investigative reporter and editor with the Toronto Star, and Diana Swain, senior investigative journalist with CBC News, took us behind the scenes on some of their most recent investigative stories, ( Ghomeshi , Ford, Scout’s Canada). Paula Todd was the moderator for the evening and shared her process on finding Karla Holmolka.

This is worth a watch if you have any interest at all in doing investigative type stories. Great tips on digging deeper and on how to deal with anonymous sources.
