Find people online (even if they don't want to be found), dig up hard-to-find information on social media, and get your facts right!

In this series of four short workshops, Aimee Rinehart of First Draft, one of the leading fact-checking organizations in news will guide you through the most accessible techniques for investigating people, discovering verifying and ethically reporting problematic content online.

This workshop is meant for journalists, investigators and anyone interested in research tips and techniques to fact-check your own work, verify your reporting and avoid embarrassing errors.

  • Super-Searching Google and Beyond. Aimee will go over the most effective techniques to find the best information through Google -- using the search engine to better search Twitter, Facebook and Instagram -- and other databases to make you an expert news-gatherer.
  • Finding People Fast (Even If They Don't Want to Be Found). Dig up the dirt efficiently to fill out your reporting on people and topics in the newsAimee will guide you through the top 10 resources, databases and techniques for finding anyone fast, especially during breaking news.
  • Newsgathering With Social Media. Social media can reveal a lot about people and about emerging situations. Learn to use Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social networks to find sources and user-generated content, and to add detail to your reporting, especially during breaking news. Aimee will also show you predictive reporting tools like CrowdTangle, Tweetdeck and InVID, and explain how using Reddit and 4chan can be informative to your reporting.
  • Bulletproofing Your Reporting. Never get it wrong and report on social sources ethically and responsibly to inform the public. Aimee will showyou the First Draft checklist of what to consider before publishing and linking to messages of digital disrupters. She will teach you how to protect yourself and your sources in the age of disinformation when journalists are targets of online and offline harassment.

Super Researcher
Reviewed by Meredith K. on 10/18/2019
This was a great class. We came away with a plethora of USEFUL resources for researching. Our professor works in the field so she's used all these tools. Also, we learned the newest high tech 'delvers'. We were asked to bring in our own PCs, etc. and for the techie class Aimee Rinehart invited in another journalist/tech guru so we could work on our own devices and test the new tools. Because there was more than one person trying to help (and imagine all the different devices and operating systems), it went quickly and smoothly, and no one was discouraged. Along with the knowledge imparted and the shared experience, we were asked to share our own current reporting challenges. We worked as a group to try to help one another solve the puzzles of finding specific information on topics. Also, we had a New York Times researcher come in: you can't get much better than that! She shared her 'boots on the ground' stories and how it works at the Times when research is required (and it's always required) and how to double and triple check your sources. I came away with a large research toolbox, and knowledge about other reporters quests, and the teachers' willingness to assist each student with their interests. The classes at Newmark Journalism are incredible. This is my third one. I've signed up for another one. They're taught by 'boots on the ground' professionals who inject experience in with the knowledge; examples to use the tools.

I couldn't review it more highly. I will be recommending this class widely. Barb was fantastic. What a trove of information she beholds. And at this cost, it was definitely a steal!
