CJF J-Talk – Guardian of News: Alan Rusbridger

Toronto, Nov. 29, 2018 - Over a 20-year career as editor of the British daily The Guardian, Alan Rusbridger oversaw the publication of ground-breaking journalism: the WikiLeaks story, the phone-hacking scandal, the mass government surveillance as disclosed by U.S National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden. As he managed the transition from national print newspaper to news site with a strong global online readership, he championed free access and strong journalistic standards. But decisions made along the way were not without their challenges and controversies. Join Rusbridger for this conversation with Irene Gentle, editor of the Toronto Star, and for the Canadian launch of his book Breaking News: The Remaking of Journalism and Why It Matters Now.

CJF J-Talk - State of Media: Survival Strategies in the Age of Misinformation

Toronto, October 17, 2018 - Journalists and media organizations around the world are under siege from misinformation fed by social media and an antagonistic U.S. president. How should journalism and democracy respond to this dual challenge? How can journalists ensure truth overrides false information?

Join a wide-ranging conversation on these issues with prominent journalism thought leaders: Jeff Jarvis, director of the Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism at the City University of New York; Jay Rosen, associate journalism professor at New York University; and Vivian Schiller, CEO of the Civil Foundation, which makes philanthropic grants in support of journalism and upholds the ethics of Civil, a blockchain-based platform that supports a global community of quality newsrooms.
