Covering Pollution: An Investigative Reporter's Guide
By Lori Luechtefeld
For IRE in cooperation with the Society of Environmental Journalists
Tap into resources you can use for local investigations into environmental pollution.
This guide seeks to be immediately useful to investigative journalists. Although it offers extensive resources for in-depth and time-intensive investigations, its main focus is to show you how you can get to the heart of an investigation quickly and without waiting months for Freedom of Information Act requests to be fulfilled.
Much of the information in this guide focuses on how to use Web-based, federal database searches to get the data you need to both find and drive environmental investigations, but you'll also find numerous tips from veteran reporters about how to handle other aspects of investigative environmental journalism, including interviews and writing.
