The Global Threat of Rogue Diplomacy

Very pleased to see the byline of Deli Reuter (Stabile '10) on this Pro Publica/ICIJ story on shadowy honorary consuls and the rogue diplomats who are arms traffickers, terrorist financiers and drug smugglers.

Honorary consuls were meant to foster ties between countries. Accused terrorist financiers, arms traffickers and drug runners are among those who have wielded diplomatic protection, a global investigation finds.

New Laws Police a Fake Problem: Voter Fraud

Ese Olumhense (Stabile '16) dives into voter suppression via the prosecution of so-called "election crimes" in an episode of The Reveal that's based on both ground and data reporting.

Extreme new laws built on Trump’s Big Lie crack down on a phantom problem: widespread voter fraud.

Human Trafficking’s Newest Abuse: Forcing Victims Into Cyberscamming

Cezary Podkul (Stabile '10) on the devastating consequences of cybercrime in the U.S. and human trafficking in Southeast Asia. Fabulous example of cross-border investigative reporting.

Tens of thousands of people from across Asia have been coerced into defrauding people in America and around the world out of millions of dollars. Those who resist face beatings, food deprivation or worse.

The lack of safe drinking water is reaching crisis proportions in many parts of the world. Emmanuel Felton, Stabile ‘13, reports from Jackson, Mississippi, where poor residents spend a chunk of government food aid on drinking water.

Jackson, Mississippi, a city without safe drinking water, is facing a crisis unparalleled in modern American history.

Trapped in harm’s way as disasters mount

Columbia Journalism Investigations released today the first of a series of reports on how vulnerable communities suffering from climate change struggle, and often fail, to receive funding aimed at protecting people from future disasters. This was a year-long investigation by CJI fellows, including Zak Cassel (Stabile '21), and assisted by two recent Stabile graduates, Gabriela Alcalde and Samantha Josephine. It's an impressive project and includes a database of disaster and mitigation aid for all U.S. counties.

Because government programs are so difficult to access, communities often find themselves dealing with climate relocation on their own.

A Harvard-trained lawyer was convicted of committing bizarre home invasions. Psychosis may have compelled him to do it. But in a case that became a public sensation, he wasn’t the only one who seemed to lose touch with reality.

This is what the judges said about his prize-winning work: “After the Flood” portrays global climate migration at its most intimate level, documenting migration and its devastating intersection with violence and organized crime. The result is a powerful and intimate portrayal of the real-life consequences of climate change."

Uncounted: Inaccurate death certificates across the country hide the true toll of COVID-19

Groundbreaking reporting on the massive undercounting of Covid deaths by overworked and understaffed coroners and medical examiners. Kudos to Derek Kravitz ('13), Jake Kincaid ('20) and others in the Documenting Covid 19 team.

In some counties, just half of the spike in deaths during the pandemic is attributed to COVID-19. Researchers say that points to a massive undercount.

Hidden Pentagon Records Reveal Patterns of Failure in Deadly Airstrikes

Amazing, groundbreaking investigation by J-School Professor Azmat Khan on the human toll of U.S. air strikes in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria. Three students in Azmat's conflict reporting class at the School, including Lila Hassan (Stable '20) helped her parse more than 5,400 pages of Pentagon records obtained after filing a lawsuit.

The promise was a war waged by all-seeing drones and precision bombs. The documents show flawed intelligence, faulty targeting, years of civilian deaths — and scant accountability.

The portal is freely accessible via mobile phone or online. It allows anyone to report stories and listen to them by giving a missed call."

‘The city will help us.’ Miami Beach took cash, fast-tracked tower on Champlain’s edge

For months, the Stabile alumni at The Miami Herald have done so much digging into Miami's "once-in-a-generation building failure" -- the collapse of the Champlain Towers. Here's their latest.

When Miami Beach city officials rushed to greenlight construction of an 18-story ultra-luxury condo tower just across the city line from Champlain Towers South, no one knew the 40-year-old building in the neighboring town of Surfside was teetering on the edge of collapse.

«Во всем мире демократия переживает экзистенциальный кризис. Нас, журналистов, судят, бросают в тюрьму или убивают; мы сталкиваемся со слежкой и преследованиями; мы тонем в потоке лжи. Кроме того, мы имеем дело с COVID-19, который, как предупреждала ООН, может стать причиной исчезновения СМИ», – отметила Шейла Коронель, профессор журналистики и директор Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism.

⁉️ Но как журналистам-расследоватям обеспечить себе защиту перед лицом порочного политического и экономического давления?

«Нам нужно быть еще более радикальными в своей правде – показывать то, что не показывают. Когда вы это делаете, многие люди соглашаются с вами. У вас появятся враги, но найдутся и друзья», – сказала Мария Тереза Рондерос, соучредитель и директор Centro Latinoamericano de Investigación Periodística.

👏 Помимо того, что нужно «вооружиться» новыми навыками и инструментами, независимые редакции должны найти союзников в виде педагогов, организаций гражданского общества и даже СМИ-конкурентов.

«Когда журналистику атакуют, наш ответ - ещё больше журналистики», – уверен Винод Хосе, редактор индийского издания The Caravan Magazine.

Дапо Олоруниоми, соучредитель, генеральный директор и издатель нигерийской газеты Premium Times, добавил: «Журналисты должны просвещать общественность, чтобы защитить демократию».

🔰От свержения президента в Южной Африке до раскрытия фактов использования шпионского ПО 11 правительствами – в последние годы расследовательские СМИ добились впечатляющих результатов.

«Сопротивление без границ – против роста национализма и расизма – и совместная журналистика могут создать новую солидарность, и это хорошие новости!», – заключил Эдви Пленель, журналист и сооснователь Mediapart.

«Мы живем в век борьбы, как за демократические идеалы, так и за выживание независимой прессы»

🌟Почитайте, как пятеро ведущих редакторов-расследователей мира предлагают противостоять антидемократическим силам, выступающим против свободы слова по всему миру. Вот краткий обзор пленарной сессии .

Catalina Lobo-Guerrero ('09 M.S. Stabile) has published "Los Restos de la Revolución" ("The Remnants of the Revolution"), a book about Venezuela and the painful transition from Chavez to Maduro.

In this book, Lobo-Guerrero "seeks to understand rather than to judge a complex process, which she goes through as a person. As an investigative chronicle, and with sensitive and careful prose, she recounts the painful transition from Chávez to Maduro, spun by the voices of those who, regardless of their ideologies, suffer the consequences of this political struggle. Together with them, she invites us to explore the bowels of what was her home for almost four years, and to remember the forgotten history of the country; to get rid of prejudices and platitudes, and to draw our own conclusions."

Learn more about the book at https://logannonfiction.org/projects/los-restos-de-la-revolucion/ and join Lobo-Guerrero on April 28th for a talk via Penguin Colombia.
"Struggling to Breathe in The Bronx," a new podcast episode produced by Ese Olumhense ('16 M.S. Stabile) and Anjali Tsui ('16 M.S. Stabile) for Northern California Public Media's "Living Downstream: The Environmental Justice Podcast," premieres today in celebration of Earth Day.

A co-production with THE CITY NY and the Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism, the podcast is based on Olumhemse's story about a Bronx family who lost an elder to COVID-19. In that story, she identified clusters of COVID-19 deaths in hard-hit Bronx neighborhoods along the Cross Bronx Expressway, a major highway that runs across the borough.

In the radio adaptation, Olumhense and Tsui show that other New York City neighborhoods near highways recorded elevated death rates from the coronavirus, including Manhattan’s Chinatown and Washington Heights, as well as parts of Queens and Brooklyn near the Long Island Expressway and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.

"Struggling to Breathe in The Bronx" was produced with a grant from the Fund for Investigative Journalism and support from Mensch Media. Listen on NPR One, Apple or wherever you get your podcasts.

Как проводить расследования в условиях диктатуры и авторитарных режимов: вебинар GIJN с русским переводом

Своей стратегией поделятся журналисты из России, Египта, Южной Африки и Филиппин – все они выступали за независимые СМИ, когда демократия в их странах пошатнулась.

Маша Гессен – штатный автор The New Yorker и автор 12 книг, в том числе «Пережить автократию» и «Будущее — это история. Как тоталитаризм снова завоевал Россию», а также статьи в The New York Review of Books «Автократия: правила выживания».

Лина Аттала – соучредитель и главный редактор Mada - новостного веб-сайта в Каире, который на сегодняшний день является одним из последних независимых СМИ в Египте. Журнал TIME назвал ее одной из самых влиятельных личностей 2020 года.

Ник Дауэс – начал свою карьеру в качестве журналиста-расследователя и политического корреспондента в Южной Африке, а затем стал главным редактором Mail & Guardian и главным редактором Hindustan Times.

Модератор – Шейла Коронель – профессор журналистики и директор Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism при Высшей школе журналистики Колумбийского университета в Нью-Йорке. Во времена правления авторитарного президента Филиппин Фердинанда Маркоса она стала соучредителем Филиппинского центра журналистских расследований.

Would like to receive last two articles on healthcare costs by Carolyn Johnson in the Washington Post for my suggested national plan. Allen Brodsky, Sc.D. [email protected]. Please help if you can.
Random acts of Islamic terrorism have now captured the world’s attention.

“The Killing Rituals”, Amazon’s # 1 bestselling political thriller authored by a former Israeli Secret Service agent, will take you to where it all started.

Back in the 80’s, in*******al romance was perceived as science fiction, international terrorism was a prelude to Al-Kaeada and ISIS, setting the stage for what has become the 21ST Century’s violent nightmare; and the two Superpowers were still engaged in the Cold War Tango. Based on true events this authentic political thriller provides you with a realistic rendition of the people and strategies deployed to combat global terrorism - and the politics that drive both.

A Palestinian nationalist fighting for his cause. A female African American CIA Agent who falls for her Israeli MOSSAD partner. An ex-KGB Officer pulling strings behind a Middle Eastern terrorist organization. A Scottish Coast Guard Captain manipulated by a bunch of seemingly-amateur sea-faring women he saves from a storm. And an FBI Agent duped by the defector he’s assigned to guard.

These are but some of the characters you’ll get to know when you read “The Killing Rituals”, The season’s bestselling surprise hit. Written by a former Israeli Secret Service agent, this suspenseful political thriller rocks you from one corner of the world to another while painting a realistic canvas of the war between Western democracies and the complex web of international terrorism.

Dear friends, “The Killing Rituals” reached # 1 Amazon Best Seller status in the “Espionage Thrillers” category – as well as # 1 in the “Mystery, Thrillers & Suspense” and the “Action & Adventure” categories! It is available in Paperback and Kindle editions.
