When journalism and national security collide
Toronto’s Osgoode Hall Law School hosted a panel discussion on March 21, 2007, exploring media coverage of Mahar Arar story. How should journalists have handled anonymous leaks that falsely branded Arar a terrorist? Should the media “out” confidential sources who spread lies? These are among the issues discussed by Julian Falconer, one of Arar’s lawyers; Paul Knox, journalist and chair of Ryerson University School of Journalism; and Andrew Mitrovica, Journalist and professor of journalism at Sheridan College. Osgoode Hall Professor Craig Scott chaired the discussion. View the video of the discussion.
