J-Talks Live - Fast Forward: Trust, Tech and the Media

Jan. 26, 2021 - It’s all happening—and happening fast across the media spectrum: digital transformation, diversification of newsrooms and efforts to engage the diverse communities media organizations seek to serve. But there are still challenges and more change to come -- how best to connect with those who are typically underserved, whether it be communities of colour, the disenfranchised or the young and disengaged? How can innovations in today’s technology be applied to reach various audiences? Particularly, can technology from the gaming world be deployed to our digital-first storytelling future?

Join Sandra Clark, vice-president for news and civic dialogue at WHYY, the public media organization serving the Philadelphia region, Nadine Ajaka, senior producer of visual forensics with The Washington Post, and Kristopher Alexander, assistant professor with a focus on video games at the RTA School of Media at Ryerson University, in a virtual conversation with host Anna Maria Tremonti, host of the podcast More.

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?

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

Is this all cause for celebration or despair?
