Technology + data + journalism = solutions
Journalists are using technology to mine data and collect government information. Examples:
The Center for Investigative Reporting
funded the development of the
campaign. The FOIA Machine is a tool for filing freedom of information requests.
Journalists are being trained to gather local-level campaign finance data through the
African News Innovation Challenge
encourages digital and data-driven journalism in that continent.
The Center of Michigan
promotes solutions-based journalism in a project to infuse data-driven coverage of Detroit’s bankruptcy and related state policies.
