Second Annual UTM Public Affairs Lecture

Daniel Dale discusses ‘Truth in the Age of Trump’

Lies are being called “alternative facts.” Real news is being called “fake news.” Journalists, described by the president of the United States as “the lowest form of humanity,” are less trusted than ever. The Toronto Star reporter who has covered both Rob Ford and Donald Trump discusses the struggle to reveal truth, and to convince people of it, in an era where facts are under attack.
