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.
