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.
