EVERY REPORTER knows about the usual tools of the trade. In the old days, these were ballpens and notebooks, and maybe a working telephone if you’re lucky. These days, reporters lug around laptops and tablets, using wireless broadband internet (look Ma, no cables!).
But those are just implements. In the end, the carpenter uses his mind and his imagination more than he uses a chisel and hammer.
To help nurture a culture for investigative reporting, the PCIJ creates its own set of tools, by publishing books, manuals, and other training elements on investigative reporting. Today’s Sulyap was produced and edited by PCIJ Multimedia Producer Cong B. Corrales.
