CJF J-Talk: Covering Canada
Toronto, Sept. 19, 2017 - Canada is journalism's latest cool assignment. Renewed international interest in all things Canadian means even we’re looking at our country from a different perspective—thanks in part to the Age of Trump and its contrast with our refugee-embracing, feminist prime minister. From discussing news outlets covering more Canada to others discovering our country and casting it in a flattering light, this panel explores the stories gaining traction with audiences, both locally and abroad, and the stories that still need to be told in a fraught political environment.
Madelaine Drohan, Canada correspondent for The Economist; Jodi Rudoren, editorial director of NYT Global, the international edition of the New York Times, and Stephen Rodrick, the contributing editor for Rolling Stone who recently profiled Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, discuss coverage with moderator Alison Smith, host of CPAC’s foreign affairs show, Perspective with Alison Smith.
