CJF J-Talk: Did Technology Kill Truth—Or Set It Free?

Oct. 23, 2017, Toronto - In an age where people have greater access to information than any time in history, are we more—or less—informed, engaged and understanding? Has technology driven us farther into our tribes and bubbles, or has it broadened and deepened our human connections? Is social media too often a purveyor of false news and misinformation, or is it a force for holding power accountable to truth?

This event featured speakers: Denise Balkissoon, editor and columnist with The Globe and Mail; Jonathan Kay, author, columnist and writer; Patrick Lagacé, columnist with La Presse; Jane Lytvynenko, journalist with BuzzFeed News; and Naheed Mustafa, producer, writer and broadcaster, to debate and discuss these fundamental questions. Anne Kornblut, director of strategic communications at Facebook and a Pulitzer Prize winner for her work as the lead editor for The Washington Post's coverage of the Snowden revelations, moderated.

Presented in partnership with the Facebook Journalism Project

CJF J-Talk: Digital or Bust? The Future of Magazines

Toronto, Nov. 30, 2016 - Whether Canadian or American, magazines face a turbulent time negotiating the digital shift. In Canada, Toronto Life celebrates 50 years, The Walrus looks to build on its foundation funding model and Rogers Media is moving towards online-only editions. South of the border, the president of the venerable thinking person's monthly, the 166-year-old Harper’s Magazine, remains firmly committed to the virtues of words on paper. Is this all cause for celebration or despair?

Speakers included special guest John R. (Rick) MacArthur, president and publisher of Harper’s Magazine; Sarah Fulford, editor-in-chief of Toronto Life; Jonathan Kay, editor-in-chief of The Walrus, Steve Maich, senior vice-president of digital content and publishing for Rogers Media; and moderator Laas Turnbull, chief audience officer for ZoomerMedia.

CJF J-Talk - From the Margins to the Mainstream: What’s Next for Digital Disruptors

Toronto, Nov. 15, 2016 - Established online in the last decade, they were media's "new kids on the block"—digital disruptors that carved their own niches within the traditional media landscape and were hailed as either saviours or saboteurs: BuzzFeed, with its listicles and viral content; VICE, with its rebel millennial voice and muckraking videos; and Twitter, a platform for citizen journalism, live reporting and feedback, along with free, sharable content. Now with a strong foothold in the Canadian media industry, what are the challenges and obstacles these digital disruptors face?

Simon Houpt, senior media writer with The Globe and Mail, moderated this discussion featuring Michael Gruzuk, director of news and digital content for VICE Canada; Jennifer Hollett, head of news and government for Twitter Canada; and Craig Silverman, editor of BuzzFeed Canada.

CJF J-Talk - Spotlight on Publishers: The Challenge of Making News Pay

Toronto, Feb. 3, 2016 - It might just be the toughest job in the industry: trying to find ways to make journalism profitable.

CJF J-Talk: Martin Baron in conversation with Anne Marie Owens

Toronto, Nov. 15, 2015 - The Washington Post has found some recent rare swagger. The storied newspaper—famous for Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein uncovering the Watergate scandal—now has the financial and digital backing of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. 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. So what’s his vision for the Post? And can the venerable Washington institution be a model for other papers? Baron was in conversation with Anne Marie Owens, editor of the National Post.
