At a time when the integrity of journalism is openly questioned, the Atlantic's Editor in Chief Jeffrey Goldberg will take part in a conversation titled "Donald Trump, the Free Press and the Future of American Democracy." Edward Steinfeld, director of the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs, will lead the conversation that is part of a new series titled Byline, which brings national commentators and correspondents together for conversations about "journalism in America's post-truth moment." As the 14th editor in chief of The Atlantic, Goldberg has written extensively about U.S. politics and policy and recently criticized the 45th President's response to the violent events in Charlottesville in a piece titled "Why Won't Trump Call Out Radical White Terrorism?" Goldberg—who was awarded the National Magazine Award for Reporting for his coverage on Islamic terrorism—has over the course of his career interviewed numerous heads of state including former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush. Author of "Prisoners: A Story of Friendship and Terror," Goldberg has reported news from Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Sudan, Syria and other countries. He has held roles at The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, and the Washington Post. The event begins at 5 p.m. in the Institute at Brown for Environment and Society, Room 130, 85 Waterman St.
