SPJ Q&A with Marty Baron

What a pleasure moderating a Society of Professional Journalists Q&A with journalism legend Marty Baron.

From investigative journalism to handling misinformation to the future of storytelling, to the impact of the Boston Globe’s “Spotlight” reporting and the Washington Post’s exposure of the NSA’s surveillance program, our chat was a master class in journalism. I’m also grateful many of our Hofstra graduate journalism students joined the conversation and asked questions.

Watch the full discussion:

Thanks to Adam Sennott and SPJ New England for coordinating.
