SPRING JOURNALISM DAY 2012
“Technology’s Tools in an Election Year”
REID J. EPSTEIN of POLITICO.COM
Noon, Fri., April 27th • Union Sandburg Theater
Journalists and voters alike can find and share more information than ever on campaigns, from the presidential and other federal races to state, county and local candidates. There’s an art and a science to using technology to gather information and distribute news, from computer data bases and online records to social media and specialized sites such as Project Vote Smart and Opensecrets.org.
Epstein formerly reported for Newsday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and the Ottawa (Ontario) Citizen after internships at the Wall Street Journal, the (Jackson, Miss.) Clarion-Ledger and the Peoria Journal Star.
