Can’t be hassled to write something, so here’s some stuff I read today that y’all might wanna read.
The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists – ‘Skin and Bone: the Shadowy Trade in Human Body Parts’
The ICIJ has published its latest ongoing investigation into the trafficking of cadavers for use in medical proceedures.
The Online Education Database- ‘The 40 Best Blogs for Journalism Students‘
The OEDb has published a list of the 40 most useful blogs for journalism students.
Columbia Journalism Review – ‘Something fishy?‘
By Mariah Blake – An excellent piece on John Solomon and his controversial period at the Center for Public Integrity, which was marred by infighting with its subsidiary organisation – the ICIJ – and led to the eventual resignation of David Kaplan.
It’s a soap-opera for journalists.
WatchDog Watcher – ‘8 Ways to Commit Grand Corruption (Part 1) and (Part 2)
An amusing, informative and slightly unnerving post by Sheila Coronel,director of the Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism at Columbia University, who gives an idea of how to launder moolah if you’re corrupt. Useful if you are corrupt. And have money. Which I don’t.
