Bilingual ‘watchdog’ training from IRE coming to Laredo

It’s in Laredo, so you’d have to fly or make the (five-hour? six-hour?) drive, but Investigative Reporters and Editors is bringing a unique, bilingual version of its Better Watchdog Workshop to Laredo Nov. 12-13. More from IRE:

This unique version of our popular Watchdog Workshop series will offer sessions in both English and Spanish. Bilingual experts from both sides of the border will help you provide better coverage of key regional issues, from immigration and government corruption to crime and the environment.

Sessions will point you to key documents that will help you produce quick-hit enterprise stories.

These sessions are designed for reporters, editors and producers from small, midsize and large publications and TV stations and Web-only news sites and news blogs. Join IRE and a group of veteran reporters for our Bilingual Workshop November 12-13.
