Covering Big Agribusiness in the Heartland
More than two dozens journalists from throughout the U.S. gathered in Champaign, Ill. for an intense three-day workshop on covering big agribusiness companies hosted by the Midwest Center for Investigate Reporting and Investigative Reporters and Editors.
The workshop, primarily funded by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation in Chicago, was hosted by the Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting and Investigative Reporters and Editors at the University of Illinois campus. Sessions were led by agribusiness experts from Midwest universities and top reporters. Resources from the workshop are posted on the Midwest site to aid journalists with pursuing collaborative projects after the workshop.
