I found this story from USA Today through nicar.org.
It is about how different ticket prices for the National Conventions this summer will get people different perks.
The computer assisted reporting comes into play when the reporter breaks down what different priced tickets offerer. There is a spreadsheet at the bottom of the story breaking down different priced tickets and what the donor gets.
In St. Paul, the platinum package costs $100,000 and includes three hotel rooms and priority credentials to evening sessions.
The reporter had to be familiar with a spreadsheet program for this article. I am certain that he used programs to find and aggregate the information too. He was dealing with two different cities, and many sources for tickets.
