"Enterprise" reporting is highly desirable
in many media companies and local entities around the country as news managers
look for exclusive stories their competitors are missing. These managers and
reporters seek fresh ideas that can become stories that both highly promote
their brand and are very appealing to viewers, listeners and readers.
There is a wealth of information that has gone
underreported or just unreported in the recently completed U.S. Census. Among
the unreported subjects that are expected to emerge as a hot button issue after
the mid-term election is redistricting and how our main political parties will
be affected by the results of the recently completed U. S. Census.
Redistricting will have a significant impact on the 2012 elections as well as
current and future elections to the U.S. House of Representatives.
To learn more about this subject and develop enterprise ideas, please join the NABJ Media Institute webinar, "Deciphering the Numbers: The Untold Stories of Redistricting.” This free webinar will be held on Wednesday, December 15th at 11:00 a.m. (EST) and will feature Anita S. Earls, Executive Director, Southern Coalition for Social Justice and Charles Robinson, Correspondent/Associate Producer, Maryland Public Television, NABJ Region II Director.
The webinar will explain the
impact of redistricting on voting patterns and ultimately our system
of government. In addition, the discussion will also explain the numbers behind
re-districting and how to disseminate accurate and insightful information
without hyperbole that will serve media consumers, news managers and
questions that will be discussed:
What congressional and and
state voting districts might be affected in a way that could dramatically alter
there be new allegations of gerrymandering, controversial public
hearings and lawsuits that delay the implementation of the new Census?
This webinar is for
journalists serious about improving their ability to capture unique content for
their organizations and the eventual dissemination of information that could
help journalists develop new stories and hence a more explanatory way of
news reporting. News managers, producers and especially local reporters are
highly encouraged to attend.
