CJF J-Talk - Funny Fake News: A Conversation with The Beaverton

Toronto, Feb. 13, 2018 - What's the difference between fake news and satire? If you don't know, The Beaverton can explain it. The weekly TV satirical news show on The Comedy Network (adapted from the popular website TheBeaverton.com) pokes fun at Canadian and world events with deft, scathing scrutiny.  But what is the role of satire in journalism? And is it even more relevant in these noisy, nonsensical times? What issues are simply too sensitive to address—if any? This conversation features The Beaverton co-anchors Emma Hunter and Miguel Rivas, along with show co-creators, co-showrunners and co-executive producers Luke Gordon Field and Jeff Detsky. Adrienne Batra, editor-in-chief of the Toronto Sun, moderates.

CJF J-Talk - The Reliable Source in the Age of Misinformation: A Conversation with Brian Stelter

Toronto, Jan. 31, 2018 - You can't be well-informed about the media and journalism if you don't pay attention to the stellar work of CNN senior media correspondent Brian Stelter. Through his must-watch Sunday morning show, Reliable Sources, which examines the week's top media stories, and his must-read Reliable Sources newsletter, Stelter's media literacy work shines light on real news amid the cacophony of noise and nonsense of a presidency that seeks to demonize journalists and spreads accusations of fake news. Stelter was in conversation with Dawna Friesen, anchor of Global National.

Who says it’s all dire news for the media industry? Consider these recent arrivals. The West End Phoenix is a community news monthly just launched in Toronto—ad-free and in print.

Discourse Media is an independent, Vancouver-based website finding success in its collaborative approach to journalism. Then there’s The Athletic, a subscription sports website expanding across major North American cities. In an environment where media outlets are struggling, what does it take to launch something new? And what does it take to sustain it?

Join our speakers: David Bidini, founder and publisher of The West End Phoenix; Saleem Khan, emergent platforms, science and technology editor with The Conversation Canada; Erin Millar, editor-in-chief and CEO of Discourse Media; and James Mirtle, editor-in-chief of The Athletic in Canada.

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: Covering Canada

Toronto, Sept. 19, 2017 - Canada is journalism's latest cool assignment. Renewed international interest in all things Canadian means even we’re looking at our country from a different perspective—thanks in part to the Age of Trump and its contrast with our refugee-embracing, feminist prime minister. From discussing news outlets covering more Canada to others discovering our country and casting it in a flattering light, this panel explores the stories gaining traction with audiences, both locally and abroad, and the stories that still need to be told in a fraught political environment.

Madelaine Drohan, Canada correspondent for The Economist; Jodi Rudoren, editorial director of NYT Global, the international edition of the New York Times, and Stephen Rodrick, the contributing editor for Rolling Stone who recently profiled Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, discuss coverage with moderator Alison Smith, host of CPAC’s foreign affairs show, Perspective with Alison Smith.
