In an epic newspaper competition, The New York Times and Washington Post both have invested significant resources to watchdog journalism in recent years. Both have broken major stories on the Trump administration, sexual harassment and other issues on the national agenda. At the same time, both newspapers have reached record readership levels.
Get an inside perspective from Dean Baquet, executive editor of the Times, and Marty Baron, executive editor of the Post. The lively, insightful conversation will be moderated by Cynthia McFadden, senior investigative and legal correspondent for NBC News.

It was a year of reckoning for prominent men accused of sexual harassment, abuse and assault. Go behind the scenes of #MeToo coverage with key journalists who reported and edited major stories involving President Trump, movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama, USA Gymnastics physician Larry Nassar and New Orleans chef John Besh.

Speakers include Brett Anderson of The Times-Picayune, Amy Brittain of The Washington Post, Rebecca Corbett of The New York Times, Marisa Kwiatkowski of The Indianapolis Star and Beth Reinhard of The Washington Post. Bernice Yeung of Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting will moderate.
