J-Talks Live - 9/11: 20 Years On: Lessons Learned in Global Journalism

The 9/11 attacks compelled news organizations and journalists to rethink their coverage, from creating a security beat, to ethical questions of sending or using freelancers in danger zones, to how to cover those who were accused—just a few issues among many.

The featured speakers are Omar El Akkad, novelist and journalist whose career coincided with the war on terror; Michelle Shephard, journalist, author, podcaster and filmmaker who has covered issues of terrorism and civil rights since the 9/11 attacks; Nazim Baksh, a producer with CBC’s The Fifth Estate who has worked extensively on issues of national security and violent religious extremism; and Shenaz Kermalli, a freelance writer who teaches journalism at Ryerson University and University of Toronto, in conversation with Anna Maria Tremonti, host of the CBC podcast More.

J-Talks Live - Risk and Injury: Journalists, Mental Health and COVID-19

Nov. 19, 2020 -

When the pandemic arrived, journalists on all beats experienced high levels of stress as they pivoted quickly to cover COVID-19, the fastest-moving story of our time. According to the early results of a study conducted in June by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford, participating journalists from around the world showed signs of anxiety and depression—70 percent suffering from some level of psychological distress—due to the many challenges and high stakes they faced in covering the crisis, sometimes in the absence of reliable information. In this ongoing reality, how can journalists take care of their mental and emotional well-being and how can newsrooms best support them?

Join the study’s authors: Dr. Anthony Feinstein, professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto and a neuropsychiatrist whose specialties include exploring how journalists are impacted by the traumatic events they report on, and Meera Selva, director of the journalist fellowship program at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism in Oxford, in a conversation with Anna Maria Tremonti, host of the CBC podcast More.
