For my Spring 2012 Ottoway Seminar class at New Paltz, with New York Times investigative reporter Andrew Lehren, a group of classmates and I worked on and article about retiring NYS Representative Maurice Hinchey and his earmarks.
You can read the article here.
I’m very proud to have worked on this and to have learned so many research techniques, especially using databases and fiiling for information and FOIA’s…
So much learning = so much loving!
Doing my first CoveritLive! event.
Now let’s see if I can get this to work properly.

Tune in to see my tweets on “The Art of Investigative Reporting” Lecture with Andy Lehren, from the New York Times.
I’m attending the National Communication Association conference in New Orleans in 2 weeks, and I just received my badge to get in and also the book I chose. I chose “Critical Studies in Media Communication”
I cannot wait to read it! It looks like it has such interesting information in it, thumbing through it the first chapter is about journalism during the Beijing Olympics. I was really excited when I read that title. There’s also coverage of racism in journalism in modern day and how the New York Times covered fires in the late 1800’s. Fascinating.
I’ll probably get to reading it this weekend. When I cut into it, Ill give a little non-libelous review!
Hope everyone is adjusting to November!
