Ottawa, Feb. 16, 2017 - Our Toronto event travelled to Ottawa!

This discussion featured breakout journalism stars of the U.S. election: Susanne Craig, the New York Times investigative reporter who got the scoop on Donald Trump’s tax returns, and David Fahrenthold, The Washington Post reporter who exposed Trump’s charitable activities.

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.

CJF J-Talk - Nick Davies in conversation with CBC’s Gillian Findlay

Sept. 24, 2015 - Toronto - An award-winning journalist who investigates journalists, Nick Davies is the British reporter who exposed the phone-hacking scandal in Rupert Murdoch’s newspaper empire. Davies uncovered the unethical relationships between reporters and private investigators as they targeted the phones of the British royal family, politicians, celebrities, and most disturbingly, the phone of a missing teenager, later found dead. Davies’s six years of dogged reporting resulted in the demise of the News of the World and sparked Britain’s Leveson Inquiry into the culture, practice and ethics of the press. Davies’s subsequent book, Hack Attack, provides a primer on the power of investigative reporting and the dangers of unethical journalism. Davies also played a key role in the Guardian’s publication of secret U.S. military and diplomatic cables obtained by WikiLeaks. Meet Davies in conversation with investigative journalist Gillian Findlay, co-host of CBC’s the fifth estate.
