Authors Sean Campbell and Scott Swigart to Speak at Annual Investigative Reporters and Editors Conference
Portland, Oregon, June 12, 2012 – Campbell and Swigart will join the best in the business in a hands-on workshop and conference hosted by Investigative Reporters and & Editors held in Boston MA June 14th – 17th 2012.
Each year the IRE (Investigative Reporters & Editors) provides investigative journalist with the tools and tips needed to uncover and break the world’s biggest stories. “We are excited and honored to have been invited to participate this year”, says Sean Campbell. “Scott and I feel the tools we use for competitive intelligence have a lot of value for investigative reporters”.
Campbell and Swigart are the acclaimed authors of Going Beyond Google: Gathering Internet Intelligence, now in its third printing. “To be an exceptional journalist you have to dive deeper, much deeper”, says Campbell. “Our contribution to the IRE Conference will be to help investigative reporters and editors find information beyond the cursory Google search and provide some immediate tools to quickly crunch the data once it’s located.”
The importance of mastering these skills will become increasingly important as the competition for breaking stories heats up during the presidential election.
