Sorry for the late notice, but I’ll be appearing on an investigative reporting panel today at Berkeley. Details below:
Investigative Reporting Seminar with Professor Lowell Bergman
When: April 3, 2009, 11:00 am — 1:00 pm
Where: North Gate Library, Hearst at Euclid Avenue, Berkeley
Tickets: This is a free event.
As part of the 3rd Annual Logan Symposium on Investigative Reporting April 3-5th, Professor Lowell Bergman’s weekly investigative reporting for print and television seminar will include a handful of print and radio reporters dedicated to reporting in the public interest: Pulitzer-prize winning reporter David Barstow of the New York Times, Richard Behar of Fortune, Bill Gertz of the Washington Times, Ken Silverstein of Harpers, Peter Waldman of Portfolio and Daniel Zwerdling of NPR. Lowell Bergman will moderate.
This seminar is dedicated to providing graduate students and attendees of the Logan Symposium with a unique opportunity to learn ‘how the sausage is made.’ Expect to learn how this group of respected reporters cultivates sources, develops and realizes story ideas, and in the end write compelling narratives.

“Civilization masks us with a screen, from ourselves and from one another, with thin depth of unreality. We habitually live — do we not? — in a world self-created, half established, of false values arbitrarily upheld, largely inspired by misconception, misapprehension, wrong perspective, and defective proportion, misapplication.”
