The Internet has changed much in journalism, particularly for newspapers. Online content has become important, and the news media are scrambling to keep up with the “next big thing.”
Although the future of print newspapers is uncertain, what is certain is that the Internet has given a gift to journalism, particularly journalism of an in-depth or investigative nature, in the form of online data.
Whether it is online or on paper, information gleaned from databases and public records is a crucial part of many stories.
“Public records are where the bodies are buried,” said Tom Kearney, managing editor of The Stowe (Vt.) Reporter.
Before coming to the Stowe Reporter, Kearney spent 37 years at at the Keene (N.H.) Sentinel, as a reporter, city editor, managing editor and, from 1984 to 2005, executive editor. He has been active in right-to-know issues and has gone to court frequently during his journalism career.
“If you want to know what really happened, you really need the records to see how a decision was made, the reasoning behind it, and see who’s helped or who’s hurt by a particular decision,” Kearney said. MORE >
