PLEASE NOTE, WE ARE EXPECTING A LARGE CROWD FOR THIS EVENT. SEATS WILL BE AVAILABLE ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS. ONCE OUR ROOM REACHES CAPACITY, WE WILL HAVE AN OVERFLOW ROOM WITH A LIVESTREAM OF THE EVENT.
As a reporter for The Washington Post covering President Trump's businesses and conflicts of interest, David Fahrenthold investigated a key claim the president makes about himself: that he gives millions to charity out of his own pocket. Without Trump’s tax returns, Fahrenthold made a list of 400 charities with ties to Trump — and called them all. The fascinating results of that investigation won Fahrenthold the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for national reporting.
Fahrenthold will give you a behind-the-scenes peek at what it’s like to cover Trump, and how journalists are adapting to the new climate. After his presentation, we will have an extended Q&A period, moderated by Annenberg Associate Professor of Communication Victor Pickard. Please bring all your questions for what we hope will be a lively discussion!
The lecture and discussion will be from 6-7pm, and a reception will follow from 7-7:30pm.
