Die Geschichte des größten Daten-Leaks aller Zeiten – die Quelle ist anonym, die Betroffenen sind alles andere als das Alles beginnt spät am Abend mit einer anonymen Nachricht: „Hallo. Hier spricht John Doe. Interessiert an Daten?“ Bastian Obermayer, Investigativreporter der Süddeutschen Zeitung, antwortet sofort – und erhält Informationen, die ihn und seinen Kollegen Frederik Obermaier elektrisieren. Es sind die Daten hunderttausender Briefkastenfirmen. Sie bieten einen Einblick in eine bislang vollständig abgeschottete Parallelwelt, in der Milliarden verwaltet, verschoben und versteckt werden: die Gelder von großen Konzernen, von europäischen Premierministern und Diktatoren aus aller Welt, von Scheichs, Emiren und Königen, von Mafiosi, Schmugglern, Drogenbossen, von Geheimagenten, FIFA-Funktionären, Adligen, Superreichen und Prominenten. Um möglichst viele internationale Geschichten erzählen zu können, beschließen die beiden Journalisten, ein weltweites Netzwerk von Investigativreportern – das ICIJ – einzuschalten. Während sie selbst weiter nach Namen und Geschichten suchen, koordinieren sie gemeinsam mit dem ICIJ die Arbeit hunderter Journalisten. Fast ein Jahr arbeiten Reporter der wichtigsten Medien der Welt – etwa des Guardian, der BBC oder von Le Monde – unter höchster Geheimhaltung zusammen, um im Frühjahr 2016 die „Panama Papers“ zu veröffentlichen. Dieses Buch ist die faszinierende Geschichte einer internationalen journalistischen Recherche, die aufdeckt, was bis jetzt verborgen war: Wie eine kleine Elite, die sich niemandem mehr verantwortlich glaubt, ungeheure Vermögen versteckt. Es ist, als würde man in einem dunklen Raum das Licht anknipsen: Plötzlich ist alles sichtbar.

The idea of the journo-coder, programmer-journalist, hacker-journalist, journo-programmer (the terminology is undecided) is gaining ground as data journalism develops both in Britain and internationally. Programmers are coming into newsrooms, journalists are venturing further into programming and there is some blurring where the two meet. Data journalism (DJ) is certainly becoming the Big Buzz Story in the media but so far little has been written about it. This new, jargon-free text, edited by John Mair and Richard Lance Keeble (with Teodora Beleaga and Paul Bradshaw), provides an original and thought-provoking insight into DJ. The first section, with contributions from Teodora Beleaga and Simon Rogers. explores various definitions of DJ; in another, experts, such as Paul Bradshaw, Nicola Hughes, Daniel Ionescu and Pupul Chatterjee provide some useful tips on developing DJ skills. Tom Felle interviews a group of international data journalists and finds they all argue their work can play a crucial democratic role in holding the powerful to account Andy Dickinson wonders if the growing field of sensor journalism offers an insight into what comes next for DJ Jacqui Taylor, Bella Hurrell and John Walton focus on data visualisations AEndrew Rininsland argues that anyone "willing to learn D3 will find they are given an unparalleled ability to create visualisations that bring data alive" Arthur Lashmar shows how an international consortium of journalists used DJ skills to expose the use of offshore tax havens by the world's rich and famous Other chapters are provided by Chris Frost, Liz Hannaford, Jonathan Hewett, Gabriel Keeble-Gagnere, Damian Radcliffe, Yaneng Feng, Qian Li and John Burn-Murdoch

It also explains the differences in technique required for general reporters to deliver business news for text, TV, or radio. Veteran journalist Keith Hayes, who has worked for such organizations as Reuters, PBS, the BBC, CBC, and CNBC, provides a quick reference to journalistic practice that covers everything from how to meet a deadline to getting answers from company or government officials who would rather not talk.

That includes understanding the major markets and how they work, learning to read a balance sheet, and getting the story even when a company or government sets up roadblocks.

Among other things, readers will also learn: How to write a business news story How to report business news on television How to report in a globalized business world How to get usable information from press conferences and briefings The basics of macroeconomics, the financial markets, and company-specific financial data How to dig for facts and get the story This book covers comprehensively the basics of business and economic reporting. With its insights and tips from Hayes and other veteran journalists, it’s a book that will remain on your shelf for years to come and help you acquire and cement career-enhancing skills.

High school journalists share the same objectives as professional reporters—finding the story, writing the story, and packaging the story so that it appeals to an audience. Understanding how to best accomplish these objectives is key to the student on the newspaper, yearbook or Web site staff, but the fundamental art of storytelling and story presentation are not always at the center of high school journalism classes. Student journalists must first understand that storytelling, at its most basic level, is about people, and that understanding the audience is essential in deciding how to present the story. This handbook for high school journalists and teachers offers practical tips for all elements of school journalism. The author covers the essential components that students must understand: information gathering, writing, standard and alternative coverage and packaging. Students will find valuable information about identifying news, interviewing, research, narrative writing style, editing, visual presentation and layout. The book also covers the legal rights of student journalists, objective vs. opinion writing, staff planning and organization and Web–based journalism. Each chapter includes study guides for practical applications of the concepts discussed. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.
