TO REGISTER FOR THE EVENT
Scott MacFarlane is a congressional correspondent for CBS News, reporting for all broadcasts and platforms.
MacFarlane brings a wealth of experience to the Capitol Hill beat having covered Washington, D.C., and the federal government for nearly 20 years. MacFarlane's meticulous and ongoing coverage of the aftermath of the January 6th insurrection at the U.S. Capitol has included interviews with several defendants and members of the House committee investigating the attack. MacFarlane and his reporting have also contributed to the public release of some of the video exhibits used by federal prosecutors in court.
Prior to CBS News, MacFarlane was a Washington-based political and investigative reporter for NBC’s WRC-TV for eight years, where he interviewed U.S. presidents, dozens of U.S. senators, governors and public officials—and also served as a board member here at CAPBA. His investigations on public school security and his reporting on various child safety issues – as well as his reporting on thoroughbred horse racing deaths in West Virginia – gained national recognition.
From practically the first moments after rioters breached the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, CBS News Congressional Correspondent Scott MacFarlane has been documenting the investigation into the circumstances surrounding the attack, the response from the Capitol Police, and the prosecution of those involved. Leaning on his extensive background as an investigative reporter, Scott’s tireless coverage of the story included interviews with defendants and conversations with committee members. His efforts played a role in the public release of some of the video exhibits federal prosecutors have used in court to secure convictions.
In our Saturday Seminar, Scott will share some of the techniques he has used to help shed light on previously unreported details of the attack on the Capitol and will discuss how you can apply those techniques in your own newsroom for your own investigative reports, including navigating the court system.
