On Friday, March 7, NJ News Commons offered a training to help news organizations and journalists throughout the state dig deep to uncover stories that lie beneath the surface — offering tips and techniques on organizing time, and learning how to use data, public records and interview techniques to get to the truth.

Ben Lesser, an adjunct at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism and a former investigative reporter for both The Record and the New York Daily News, led the training. See Lesser’s training slide show is chock full of sources of data, from where to look for campaign donations to finding prisoners.
