Computer Assisted Reporting Analysis

By Octavio Abea

A story from PBS that talks about whether border patrol agents have been using excessive force curb illegal immigration is a good example of computer assisted reporting.

The journalist searched for the records regarding the amount of deaths by border patrol agents as well as video taken by on-lookers showing an individual getting beaten. Skills that a journalist would need to do a story like this is searching government records and interpreting them.
