Learn how to promote government accountability

Join IRE on Thursday for a discussion on how to strategize your reporting to hold government officials accountable during COVID-19.

You can register for the webinar here.

Learn how to hold public officials accountable from journalists who are doing it in their COVID-19 reporting. We’ll cover story strategies that show how past budget cuts are affecting reopening efforts in Pennsylvania, how published data from Georgia’s Department of Public Health is causing confusion and how you can use data compiled by The Washington Post to find public companies who have reported receiving money from the Paycheck Protection Program.

Panelists include Willoughby Mariano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution; Aneri Pattani of Spotlight PA; and Steven Rich of The Washington Post. Lauren Grandestaff and Cody Winchester of IRE will moderate the discussion.

The webinar will also be recorded and posted on the IRE website for those who cannot attend live. The webinar is free and available to members and non-members of IRE.
