Investigative Reporting in the Age of Fake News

February 17, 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Manoa Campus, Art Auditorium, 2535 McCarthy Mall Add to Calendar

Join us for a conversation on journalism, truth, and power with Pulitzer-winning reporter Sacha Pfeiffer of the Boston Globe’s Spotlight investigative team.

Pfeiffer has worked in both radio and print media and has won numerous awards in both arenas, including the George Polk and Edward R. Murrow awards. As part of the Globe’s Spotlight team, she revealed decades of sexual abuse within the Catholic Church as well as systematic concealment by church leadership. (This case was the subject of the film Spotlight, in which Rachel McAdams plays Pfeiffer.) She has also reported major stories on shoddy housing construction and financial misconduct by private charities. She is the co-author of Betrayal: The Crisis in the Catholic Church, and has served as a John S. Knight journalism fellow at Stanford.

The conversation will be moderated by Richard Hornik, a longtime reporter and editor at TIME and ASIAWEEK, and a Daniel K. Inouye Visiting Scholar at UH Mānoa’s School of Communications.
