Toronto, April 23, 2015 - He’s the reporter who doesn’t stop. Meet Jeremy Scahill, in his prime as one of the biggest rabble-rousing investigative reporters and authors there is. Best known for his foreign reporting, Scahill is the author of best-selling books: Dirty Wars: The World Is a Battlefield (his documentary of the same name garnered an Academy Award nomination in 2014) and Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army. A co-founder of The Intercept, the news site best known for reporting on the Edward Snowden-leaked National Security Agency documents, he continues his scrutiny of American-led actions and practices both at home and overseas as the government seeks to combat terrorism. Scahill was in conversation with David Walmsley, editor-in-chief of The Globe and Mail.
