USD Podcast Credit Hour Interviews Washington Post Executive Editor Marty Baron
“I think that fundamental to our mission as journalists is to give people the information they need and deserve to know as citizens of this country,” Baron said.
An acclaimed investigative journalist, Baron’s role uncovering the Boston Catholic sexual abuse scandal was highlighted in the Oscar award-winning movie Spotlight.
“Marty was a guest on campus earlier this year where he spoke to us about getting his start in journalism, what it’s like to be portrayed in a movie, his thoughts on the current state of media. And of course - what he thinks of media in the age of Donald Trump,” said Michael Ewald, host of Credit Hour.
