Fred: Winnipeg story an example of a very straightforward and simple analysis, wouldn't have taken reporterts long to put together. Data often reveals patterns that you haven't seen before, then you have to go and find the people to demonstrate the story.
@FVjones With data journalism you are putting your credibility on the line, must take care to make sure data is accurate. Data doesn't exclude you from restraints or requirements of being a good journalist. #CAJ16data
@mckiedavid up now. #1 mistake ppl make with data journalism is over complicating things, forgetting just to tell stories #caj16data
Question - how do you fact-check someone else's data set?
Fred: Go to the source if you can. If not, go to the original journalistic source and interpret their data. It can be difficult.
Now onto @AndrewMaco. Looking at example of data journalism; Chinese condo buyers in Montreal - were they $$ smugglers? #caj16 #caj16data
Andrew: Could do this in Quebec because pulling docs is affordable; talk about privatizing real estate industry because guys at the top are getting scared of us.
That's it for now, but there are plenty of other data sessions coming down the pipe this afternoon and tomorrow #caj16 #caj16data
