The Penn State scandal, piece by piece

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 11/14/2011

This interactive is a chronology of the Penn State scandal with events that the user can filter by the people involved in the scandal. I based the information on the reporting of Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporters as well as a grand jury presentment. I alone conceptualized and programmed the interactive. I also wrote the copy for each event and selected all the photos. I ensured that the interactive could be easily repurposed for future projects and updated regularly by the Post-Gazette's interactives editor. This interactive uses jQuery, PHP and XML.
