Friday Night Reflections: Fact vs Fiction – The Role of Media in Democracy
November 13, 2020 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm
On the heels of a US election, we ask: what is the role of the media in upholding democracy? In providing thoughtful analysis without being directive? In holding public figures accountable?
This week, join special guest host Mayor Naheed Nenshi in a wide-ranging conversation with journalists Ali Velshi, Farah Nasser and Zain Velji. Our panellists reflect on their recent election experiences, their inside views on the challenges of staying objective, fair and accurate, and their perspectives on the role that citizens and government can play in supporting a free press and strong democratic institutions.
