Reporters, editors, and journalists will find this third edition of The Reporter's Handbook an even more impressive resource than prior editions. This essential tool for serious journalists identifies hundreds of documents and human sources in both private and government sectors. It provides step-by-step methods for tracking paper trails, people trails, and computer trails. The book also includes coverage of library research, computer-assisted reporting, case studies, anecdotes, and IRE contest-winning pieces. This new edition features chapters on the environment, transportation, housing, financial institutions, international investigation, utilities, and non-profit organizations. Under the sponsorship of Investigative Reporters and Editors, Inc., Steven Weinberg has revised and polished this journalism classic into a must-have reference guide for the classroom and the newsroom.
