Monday May 25th – 12:00 PM EST

We are kicking off the virtual conference series with Washington-based CNN reporter Daniel Dale,a former Toronto Star city hall reporter and bureau chief. He will discuss his experiences reporting on some of the era’s most interesting politicians: Rob Ford, Doug Ford and Donald Trump. He will talk about his unique role as a fact-checker of everything the president of the United States says, what he has learned in both Canada and the US about truth and lies in politics, and how the media should address political deception.
