TORONTO, March 3 /CNW/ - The Canadian Journalism Foundation is hosting a panel discussion with journalists who reported from Haiti. The event, "Stories from Haiti: A Round Table Discussion with Reporters Who Were There", takes place at Innis Town Hall at the University of Toronto on Tuesday, March 16 at 6:30 p.m. After the presentation, there will be Q&A with the audience followed by a reception in the adjacent café where panelists and guests can continue the discussion.
STORIES FROM HAITI: A ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION WITH REPORTERS WHO WERE THERE
It was a news story that transfixed the world for days, then weeks: A massive earthquake in Haiti left thousands dead, and thousands more homeless without food, water or medical help. The pictures and stories coming out of the collapsing nation were heartbreaking. Some accused the media of feeding on suffering, while others credited them for bringing attention and thus aid to the devastated country. But no one would dispute that for those who were there it was an unforgettable assignment.
Handling mixed emotions was just the first of many challenges faced by journalists who took on the tough assignment of reporting in Haiti. We'll hear their stories and more at the next CJF Forum.
