Student journalists investigate unsafe water
Aug. 17, 2017
A new investigative report found that as many as 63-million people, nearly a fifth of the country, were exposed to unsafe water more than once during the past decade. The investigation, which is part of the Carnegie-Knight News-21 program, is called Troubled Water. The project includes a documentary and more than a dozen multimedia stories and databases on water pollution. Jacquee Petchel, the executive editor of News-21 and Jasmine Spearing-Bowen, one of the 29-student-journalists involved in the project, will tell us more about their work.
