Journalism Impact: Puerto Rico

If you're looking for impact by investigative journalists, check out what our colleagues in Puerto Rico just did. For almost two weeks, hundreds of thousands of Puerto Ricans marched in the streets demanding the resignation of Governor Ricardo Rossello after GIJN member Puerto Rican Centro de Periodismo Investigativo exposed texts that revealed Rossello and his cronies disparaging gays, women and hurricane survivors. The texts also provided an inside look at "inappropriate and illegal interventions" by businessmen profiting off Puerto Rico's misfortune. Rossello has since resigned.

Global Conference Sells Out

Due to unprecedented interest, the Global Investigative Journalism Conference has now sold out. We're sorry we can't accommodate everyone who wants to come, as we've now reached the capacity of our host facilities. There may be cancellations, so we encourage those still interested to get on the waiting list. We'll have a terrific program ready to release soon, with a record of 200 panels and workshops, along with 275 speakers from 50 countries. Follow the action at #GIJC19.

New Climate Change Guide

New from the GIJN Resource Center: A guide to investigative angles in covering the climate crisis. While much of the news comes from scientists, we found lots of potential for in-depth, imaginative reporting. You'll find leads for investigative projects, critiques on current coverage, and links to the best resources on this vast and challenging story.

Venezuela: Reporting from Exile

Doing journalism in Venezuela today is tough not only because the government has clamped down on press freedom, but also due to the rough conditions for classic shoe-leather reporting. Check out how Armando.Info's editorial team manages an award-winning newsroom with key editors in exile and reporters still on the ground in Venezuela.
