Tools for Print Journalists
An aspiring journalist might ask: "Where can I find some resources on how to get great anecdotes out of an interview subject?" The short answer is this fine site, which was created and maintained by the Committee of Concerned
Journalists within the Tools for Print Journalists area of their main site.
Although visitors can't search the various resources, they can scan through the several hundred resources as they see fit, and there are dozens of great things to look at here. For example, Pulitzer Prize-winning report Eric Nalder shares his tips for conducting effective interviews in the Loosening Lips factsheet. Moving on, another resource offers a journalist's guide to the Geneva Conventions. Overall, the site is a very useful resource for journalists of all stripes, and it's one that journalism
instructors can also use in the classroom. (The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout Project 1994-2007.
