Taking place in the Kemmy Business School in room KBG 12 19:00 29th September 2022
Joining the dots: New frontiers of investigative journalism In this public talk Malachy Browne will be discussing some of the cutting edge approaches to investigative journalism that are increasingly driven by large datasets both hidden and publicly accessible.
Via a multimedia presentation, he will be walking through some recent major stories that his award winning team at the New York Times has worked on, from war crimes in Ukraine to police shootings in the US, and demonstrating how to extract reporting details and analysis of evidence that is often hidden in plain sight. He will also show how these are combined with traditional reporting methods as well as the key principles by which the New York Times Visual Investigations Unit approaches their work.
He will also be discussing the declining trust in traditional media and the weaponization of social media, and the higher bar that journalism must meet in explaining to readers/viewers how we know something to be true.
