Marty Baron: Investigative journalism in the age of Trump
Since taking over as executive editor of The Washington Post since 2013, Martin “Marty” Baron has led something of a resurgence at the paper. Before that he was editor of The Boston Globe for a decade, during which time he led its investigation into the cover-up of clerical sexual abuse in the city which became the film Spotlight. Arguably the most important editor currently working in America, he came to the CIJ to talk about his career and about the challenges and opportunities of doing investigative journalism, and of speaking truth to power, in the age of President Trump.
Chair: James Harkin, CIJ Director.
