Thanks to Mr. Cosgrove for passing along this resource he found online.
The “Power Reporting” site is maintained by the Columbia Journalism Review, a publication of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. The site is subtitled, “resources for journalists” and the home page is a directory divided into categories such as companies, non-profits, government, people finders. While this sort of division is meant to narrow down the best tools according to what you are searching, many links take you to other pages of directories, which may add to your confusion.
Another drawback is that some links are for paid subscription services such as Lexis-Nexis and Edgar. For anyone who is interested in learning how to maximize the tools that this site provides, the people at power reporting provide on-site training for a $1200 fee. That’s news to me.
