Video: School of Data Journalism - Getting Stories from Data workshop

 

Prof. Steve Doig, Walter Cronkite School of Journalism, and Pulitzer Prize winner, is sure that "there are stories everywhere in data," and even being denied information by governments and authorities can become a powerful story in itself. In this workshop investigative freelance journalist Caelainn Barr shared her experience of working on the EU structural funds investigation with the Bureau of Investigative Journalism in London and the Financial Times, as an example of getting stories from raw data provided in non-machine readable formats.
