David E. McCraw - Truth in Our Times: Inside the Fight for Press Freedom in the Age of Alternative Facts — in conversation with Michael S. Schmidt

Upcoming Event
Friday, March 15, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

As deputy general counsel at The New York Times, McCraw is responsible for providing legal counsel to the newsroom regarding libel, freedom of information, court access, litigation, and news-gathering. The one who decides what news is fit to print, McCraw has vetted all the paper’s potentially controversial stories since 2002. In his memoir he takes readers inside the paper of record, chronicling decisions about stories ranging from Chelsea Manning's leaks to Trump's tax returns and the president’s demand that the paper retract an October 2016 story about two women accusing Trump of touching them inappropriately. A look at conscientious journalism in action, McCraw’s book is an emphatic counterargument to slurs against the media. McCraw will be in conversation with Michael S. Schmidt, a two-time Pulitzer-winning reporter for The New York Times.
