The movie “Spotlight” focused wide public attention on the power of classic investigative reporting. At the same time the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and the Associated Press achieved unprecedented impact with their reporting on the Panama Papers and Seafood From Slaves. Three of the four reporters portrayed in “Spotlight” are JSK alumni; two of them, Walter Robinson and Michael Rezendes, will join Marina Walker Guevara of ICIJ and Mary Rajkumar of the Associated Press for this event. The discussion will celebrate past successes and point towards the kind of innovations that will enable investigative reporting to thrive in the future.
