“Fake News, Real News, and Failing Upward at the New York Times” – the Times’s Jim Rutenberg – Tom Twomey Series – East Hampton Library, May 12, 2018

May 12, 2018

Just to say it was great to have been asked to share a stage with the New York Times media columnist Jim Rutenberg in the full-house opener of the fourth season of the East Hampton Library’s “Tom Twomey Series.” Jim was part of the Pulitzer Prize-winning team for the newspaper’s (and the New Yorker’s) #MeToo coverage.

Here’s a pre-event interview with Jim by Christopher Walsh that appeared in the East Hampton Star:

 

 

The event was titled “Fake News, Real News, and Failing Upward at the New York Times.” Here’s a link to the event page on the Tom Twomey Series site. And below is the Facebook Live video of the hour-long event (until the better-filmed LTV one is aired.) Jim talked about the New York Times in the era of Trump/MeToo/NDAs/Catch and Kill/the future of news and so much more.  Have a look:
