Time and time again, President Donald J. Trump has attacked journalists on Twitter. He has derided the work of major American news outlets as «fake news» and the press as «the enemy of the people». But media giants such as The Washington Post and The New York Times have resisted this pressure, calling out Trump’s false statements and reporting thoroughly and accurately about his administration. As a managing editor at The Washington Post, Cameron Barr has been in the midst of the turmoil, overseeing coverage of the administration and occasionally taking calls from White House officials upset with The Post’s reporting. Cameron will talk about journalism in Trump’s America and The Post’s investigation of Russian attempts to influence U.S. politics, including stories that forced the resignation of Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn.
