Democracy Dies In Darkness: An Interview with The Washington Post’s Martin Baron

Setup

Marty Baron has a larger-than-life reputation among journalists, who revere him one of the best editors in a generation. Multiple Pulitzer Prizes — and Oscar-winning narratives — only punctuate his passion for excellence in reporting. Since joining The Washington Post as executive editor in 2013, Baron has pursued the kind of investigative journalism for which the paper is famous: all things Washington politics, of course, but also issues that matter to citizens in communities across the country. We’ll ask him how the 21st century newsroom keeps up with the pace set by social media, and how investigative journalists can compete with a sound-bite culture. And, these days, how do his reporters and editors grapple with constant pressures of “fake news” criticism?
