PRESENTED BY: The Canadian Club of Toronto in partnership with the Canadian Journalism Foundation


DESCRIPTION: Journalism is changing faster than most of our democratic institutions. Thanks to the Internet, new journalists are emerging and redefining the craft. Nowhere is this more evident than in 'political journalism' where some of the most original and informative political reporting and commentary is taking place not in the mainstream media but online. David Frum, an established mainstream author and journalist, is a leader in this new form of political journalism. He is the creator of Frum Forum, a website dedicated to the modernization and renewal of the U.S. Republican party and the conservative movement in America.

Please join us on Monday, September 27th when David Frum will speak on the state of political journalism.

BIO: David Frum is the editor of FrumForum.com and the author of six books, including two New York Times bestsellers. He is a regular commentator on American Public Media's Marketplace and writes regular columns for Time magazine, CNN.com, The Week and the National Post.  In 2001-2002, David Frum served as a special assistant to President George W. Bush. In October 2005, Frum founded and served as chairman of Americans for Better Justice, the lobbying group that led the opposition to the nomination of Harriet Miers to the U.S. Supreme Court. In 2007-2008, he served as senior foreign policy adviser to the Rudy Giuliani presidential campaign. Frum is a member of the board of directors of the Republican Jewish Coalition. The Daily Telegraph's 2007 and 2009 surveys named Frum as one of America's 50 most influential conservatives.
