Fake News Fightback – Lunch talk, co-presented with Melbourne Press Club

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

President Donald Trump’s obsession with “fake news” has America a-twitter with distrust for the fourth estate. But it’s also a boon for investigative journalists. Activists are agitating, minorities are calling to have their voices heard and the Black Lives Matter movement is picking up steam.

To discuss it all we welcome two talented American reporters. Tonya Mosley is public radio station KQED’s senior Silicon Valley reporter. She won an Emmy in 2016 for her televised piece “Beyond Ferguson”, and has built a curriculum for journalists to address implicit bias. Emmy-nominated investigative reporter and author Aaron Glantz has turned his attention to Trump after years covering the war in Iraq and the lives of returned veterans. Beyond the big questions such as whether the election was fixed, he’s been digging into the paper trail on Trump associates.

At this special event jointly hosted by the Walkley Foundation’s Storyology series and the Melbourne Press Club – Mosley and Glantz will discuss the challenges for the United States and its media, and how newsrooms can work smarter, dig deeper and rebuild trust in great journalism.
