We are in a renaissance age for journalism. In the last two years NBC News has emerged as a bona fide leader in original reporting, an area traditionally dominated by print, with over 500 investigative scoops on such wide-ranging topics as the USA gymnastics scandal, the Mueller investigation, cyber security, North Korea’s nuclear production and harm caused by medical devices. How are they doing it? They have doubled their commitment and their staff of investigative journalists. Noah Oppenheim, President of NBC News, will discuss the importance of original journalism with Stephen Battaglio, television and media writer of the Los Angeles Times, joined by NBC News investigative journalists Carol Lee and Ken Dilanian.
