Computer-Assisted Investigative Reporting


Press Room: CAIR

"The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them."
--Patrick Henry, 1787

Computer-Assisted Investigative Reporting


The Heritage Foundation has teamed with the Sunlight Foundation and Center for Responsive Politics to present its Computer-Assisted Investigative Reporting boot camps for journalists and bloggers seeking to enhance their reporting and research skills.

The 2009 CAIR boot camps mark the tenth year for the events that have graduated more than 400 editors, reporters, producers, researchers and graphics artists. The boot camps are held throughout the year at the National Press Club's Eric Friedheim Library in Washington, D.C. Special workshops can also be arranged.

Those interested in attending a CAIR boot camp are encouraged to enroll ASAP as the events tend to fill up rather quickly. For more information, contact Patrick Tyrrell at The Heritage Foundation at (202) 546-4400 or course instructor Mark Tapscott at (202) 459-4968 or mark.tapscott@gmail.com.
