I've gone from typing on half pages with a manual Underwood that were hand set into newspapers to publishing articles in seconds. What I have found is that the journalistic fundamentals are the same, whether it's investigative writing, feature writing or editorial writing; the inverted pyramid is not dead, just tightened. The main difference, for me, between print and online journalism, is the reading audience. Print readers cradle their latte on a Sunday morning and take their time to peruse the paper, one page at a time. Online readers scan news sites as fast as they can click their mouse. My ledes are written for the reader who has the attention span of a flea, yet my articles deliver the five W’s the old-fashioned way. My role models are Woodward and Bernstein and Hunter S. Thompson. I guess what we have here could be considered Gonzo Investigative Journalism. Online news should never sacrifice accuracy for the scoop. My combined experience of twenty years as both a reporter and as a technical writer has taught me the importance of fact checking not only against source documents but with human sources as well. This is done through a process I call “technical review” so my articles provide the best information possible. I am an original shareholder of Ahtna Inc., an Alaska Native corporation, and a U.S. Navy vet . I am also a member of Investigative Reporters and Editors, Society of Professional Journalists and the Mohican Veterans.
