Beyond the Headlines: Have the Media Treated Mayor Ford Fairly?
“A video that allegedly shows the Mayor of Canada’s largest city smoking crack cocaine has generated headlines around the world. News of the video, which was not produced by the journalists, has also raised questions – some of them for the first time in Canada – on the way in which journalists gather and report on people and events. A panel will look beyond the headlines of this watershed moment to discuss the media’s treatment of Mayor Ford, who has not acknowledged the allegations, and the broader implications for society.”
