Colin Woodard: Journalism in the Age of Trump

Colin Woodard, Camden Conference, Journalism in the Age of Trump

The final program in our Camden Conference series will explore the changing role of the press during the current presidential administration. In a world of “alternate facts” and “fake news,” how is the Fourth Estate moving forward with its obligation to report factually—and how is it being perceived by the public. Colin is an award-winning author and journalist. He is currently State and National Affairs Writer for the Portland Press Herald / Maine Sunday Telegram, where he was a 2016 Pulitzer Prize finalist and received a 2012 George Polk Award for his investigative reporting. He is also a contributing editor at Politico and writes for Washington Monthly and The
Chronicle of Higher Education
and reviews books for the Washington Post. A native of Maine, he has reported from more than fifty foreign countries and seven continents, and lived for more than four years in Eastern Europe. In 2014 he was named one of the "Best State Capitol Reporters in America" by the Washington Post and Journalist of the Year by the Maine Press Association.
