University of Toronto Mississauga | Mississauga
Hosted by the University of Toronto Mississauga.
Join fellow U of T Alumni and Friends for a Snider Lecture featuring Daniel Dale, Reporting on Trump, the Fords and the Facts.
Award-winning reporter Daniel Dale has built his career on fact-checking politicians. At the 2019 Snider Lecture, Dale will share his stories about his time at CNN and the Toronto Star covering Donald Trump, Rob Ford and Doug Ford. He'll focus on his fact-checking work—why he started it and kept doing it, why facts still matter in this era, why it's important to call a lie a lie, how people across the spectrum have reacted to what he does and how the media is still failing in handling political dishonesty. He'll also offer some advice to citizens about how they can contribute to a fact-based discourse.
