Media In The Age Of Trump With ABC News President James Goldston

Tuesday, June 13, 2017
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

The biggest story of 2017 is the new – and unpredictable – administration.  People are eager to understand what’s happening in the world, and there have never been so many sources for news to engage them. At the same time, fake news is on the rise, leading to profound confusion.  Many people feel ignored or misunderstood by mainstream media organizations. Others dismiss every outlet as a partisan voice. The truth itself has come under siege.

How can modern newsrooms respond in the current climate when the spotlight has never been so intense?

ABC News, known for its distinctive, fair and fearless reporting, boasts some of the best journalists in the business. BANFF is proud to announce a Keynote Address from James Goldston, the President of ABC News, where he will take on these topics and help make sense of a rapidly changing business. This will undoubtedly be one of the most timely and fascinating conversations of the Festival.
