Seymour Hersh to address London course

“News is what someone wants to suppress. Everything else is advertising” – Reuven Frank, former head of NBC News

The Centre for Investigative Journalism is staging a summer school at the Cass Business School in London from July 20 to 22 aimed at any journalist who believes that there are better stories to be had out there, but for some shrewd extra digging. Seymour Hersh, the Pullitzer Prize-winning American journalist, is hoped to be among the keynote speakers.

The course offers workshops, seminars and training sessions that will include:
â–  computer-assisted reporting
â–  finding and making sense of financial and business documents
â–  issues in libel law
â–  television and radio investigations
â–  advanced internet research
â–  writing investigations
â–  the economics of investigative journalism
â–  new issues of human rights, fraud, injustice and corruption reporting

Speakers include
Lowell Bergman, Pulitzer Prize-winner, New York Times, PBS Frontline
Sharon Tiller, PBS Frontline World. Plus: Raj Bairoliya of Forensic Accounting, Heather Brooke, Philip Conway, David Donald, Ali Fadhil, Luc Hermann, Mark Hunter, Tommy Kaas, Jeff Katz, Gavin MacFadyen, Robert Miller, Aron Pilhofer, Justin Walford, leading libel lawyers and radio and television journalists
