The Drake School of Journalism and Mass Communication is partnering with the Florida-based journalism training organization Poynter Institute to host a three-day political reporting workshop, Sept. 20-23. Approximately 50 journalists, political operatives and other experts are on campus to discuss the Iowa Caucuses, best practices in political reporting, fact-checking, how presidential campaigns are run and understanding polls. It is the third time that Drake SJMC has partnered with Poynter to host a “boot camp” before the Iowa Caucuses. The event is funded by a grant from The Newmark Philanthropies.
