Ottawa, Feb. 16, 2017 - Our Toronto event travelled to Ottawa! Following the inauguration of Donald Trump, this talk explores the role of media in a time where many feel anxious, vulnerable and subject to legitimized hate—or, on the other extreme, ignored by the mainstream media altogether. 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. David Walmsley, editor-in-chief of The Globe and Mail, moderates this discussion about the role of journalists in these uncertain times.
