Shining a New Spotlight: Innovations in Investigative Reporting

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.

JSK: 50 Years of Impact

Journalism fellowships at Stanford started 50 years ago with a big question: How can the resources of a major private university be most usefully marshaled to help the press and broadcasting meet their needs and responsibilities? This session will seek to answer that question, by exploring the impact that Stanford journalism fellows have had over the last half-century - whether they call themselves PJFs, Knight Fellows or, now, JSK Fellows. Bonus feature: a conversation between 1986 Fellow Rita Williams and Fellowships Director Emeritus Jim Risser about the years when the program transformed itself from the PJF program to the Knight Fellowships.

Sinopsis of the film:
The economists behind the implementation of the most extreme neoliberal system in the world observe with surprise the discontent of its countrymen. For the first time, they tell the story of how they became Milton Friedman’s students in Chicago in the ’50s and what were they willing to do to pursue their extreme economic ideas, aided by Pinochet’s dictatorship in the ’70s. Unseen images and testimonies that allow us to understand the historic process that transformed the Chilean people and Chile in the country that it is today, an image of success and discontent.

Bias Breakthrough: How To Strengthen Coverage of Race, Identity and Inequality
Questions of race, identity, and inequality are at the center of some of today’s most important stories. They also provide the most opportunities for missteps and misunderstandings. How can we best serve our audiences with the richest, most contextual, and most accurate content on these topics? 
2016 JSK Fellows Tonya Mosley and Jenee Desmond-Harris will offer a toolbox for journalists who want to deepen and strengthen their reporting on today’s hottest topics and hardest questions. Their workshop is an immersive course on bias and how it plays out in our work. The workshop is a mix of interactive role play, reflection and examples of bias in media. From there, they look at solutions - providing proven tools to help reporters as they head out into the field reporting on difficult subjects.
