It’s true. Emily Steel, business reporter with The New York Times, took down the bad guys with her reporting. With the media industry as her beat, she and a colleague exposed former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly’s settlements with multiple women over sexual harassment and other inappropriate behaviour. She went on to report about the toxic culture at Vice Media in the U.S, involving four settlements over sexual harassment and defamation allegations. In this era of #MeToo, what have we learned about power dynamics in the workplace, in newsrooms or elsewhere? Hear Steel in conversation with Althia Raj, Ottawa bureau chief with HuffPost Canada.
