Toronto, Nov. 15, 2015 - The Washington Post has found some recent rare swagger.

Journalists and journalism observers hope he can inject energy and innovation while rethinking the business model. At the editorial helm is Martin Baron, the executive editor with enviable journalistic cred: three of his previous newspapers are Pulitzer Prize winners under his editorship.

CJF J-Talk: John Stackhouse and Craig Silverman

Toronto, Nov. 12, 2015 - John Stackhouse’s three-decade career with The Globe and Mail—including five years as editor-in-chief—spanned a period of massive digital disruption to traditional journalism. In his latest book Mass Disruption: Thirty Years on the Front Lines of a Media Revolution, Stackhouse recalls how the Globe and other news outlets experimented with different delivery models as the Internet, social media and digital upstarts fragmented audiences and ad dollars. At the same time, the goal of mainstream news organizations to provide authoritative coverage of news events was challenged by new, agile competitors. Among them: BuzzFeed, which aims to create viral content by covering news with unabashed humour—its listicles and videos key drivers of stories via social media. Earlier this year, BuzzFeed established a Canadian presence with Craig Silverman—best known for a career built on media accuracy—as its founding editor. In a conversation covering current challenges to the media and lessons learned, Stackhouse and Silverman discussed the future of journalism from their distinct perspectives.

CJF J-Talk - Nick Davies in conversation with CBC’s Gillian Findlay

Sept. 24, 2015 - Toronto - An award-winning journalist who investigates journalists, Nick Davies is the British reporter who exposed the phone-hacking scandal in Rupert Murdoch’s newspaper empire. Davies uncovered the unethical relationships between reporters and private investigators as they targeted the phones of the British royal family, politicians, celebrities, and most disturbingly, the phone of a missing teenager, later found dead. Davies’s six years of dogged reporting resulted in the demise of the News of the World and sparked Britain’s Leveson Inquiry into the culture, practice and ethics of the press. Davies’s subsequent book, Hack Attack, provides a primer on the power of investigative reporting and the dangers of unethical journalism. Davies also played a key role in the Guardian’s publication of secret U.S. military and diplomatic cables obtained by WikiLeaks. Meet Davies in conversation with investigative journalist Gillian Findlay, co-host of CBC’s the fifth estate.
