Discussion: What is the role of political journalism in 2019?

“…truth is under attack, trust is in decline…and the misinformation has never been so pervasive”, says the Canadian Journalism Foundation’s  (CJF) President and Executive Director, Natalie Turvey during her introductory remarks for this edition of CJF’s J-Talks Series.  Journalists gathered together at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa for a frank conversation on the state of the industry today and what it ultimately means for democracy.
