Is freedom of the press enough if we lose faith in the press? (Guest - David McCraw)

Passing Judgment

Is there a typical day for David McCraw, the Deputy General Counsel at the New York Times and the author of “Truth in Our Times: Inside the Fight for Press Freedom in the Age of Alternative Facts”? Answer, not really. David stops by Passing Judgment to talk about what it is like to be the New York Times' top newsroom lawyer at a time when public trust in the media is at an all-time low, how he supports the work of reporters, and why faith in the press may matter as much as the freedom of the press.   This podcast is powered by Pinecast.
