The First Amendment and Its Role in Journalism: A Deep Dive with The New York Times Leading Newsroom Attorney David McCraw
March 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join PRSA Philadelphia, in partnership with Temple University’s PRSSA, for a fireside chat with David McCraw, lead attorney for The New York Times newsroom, and author of Truth in Our Times: Inside the Fight for Press Freedom in the Age of Alternative Facts.
During this conversation, David, who has worked at the New York Times for almost two decades, will delve into his experience as the lawyer behind virtually every major investigative and political story The Times has done during that period, from its Pulitzer Prize-winning stories on the dangerous working conditions at a Texas foundry, the lethal aftermath of Hurricane Katrina at a New Orleans hospital, and the secret fortunes of China’s political elites to the paper’s groundbreaking coverage of the war in Syria, Donald Trump’s leaked tax returns, and the government’s top-secret surveillance of American citizens. David will also speak about the role of the First Amendment in journalism and what is and is not protected under this amendment.
This event is free for all PRSSA members.
