Data journalists: the rock stars of news
Leading data journalists Helena Bengtsson of STV (Sweden), John Burn-Murdoch of The Financial Times (UK), and Pamela Duncan of The Guardian (UK) join our Covid-19: a Data Story panel.
If the financial crisis of 2008 made finance and economic correspondents the stars of news, the Coronavirus pandemic made data journalists, science and health correspondents into household names.
We’ve never watched the numbers and graphs with such intensity. But what data can you trust and how to interpret what you see? Learn the best practices of data-driven stories at the times when data drives policy decisions like never before. Mon 6 June at 14:00 BST. Register to attend for free.
And here is a taster. One of this panel’s speakers, John Burn-Murdoch appeared on the BBC Radio 4 The Media Show, alongside Caelainn Barr of The Guardian, talking about data journalism at the time of the Coronavirus pandemic.
