The Press, the President and the Future of the First Amendment

Must See Mondays

Monday, September 23, 2019 - 7:00pm

David McCraw leads The New York Times’ fight for freedom of information, defending it against libel suits and providing legal counsel to reporters breaking the biggest stories of the year.

When Donald Trump's lawyer demanded that the Times retract an article focused on two women who accused Trump of touching them inappropriately, McCraw's scathing letter of refusal went viral. As his book notes, that was just another day at the office.

This discussion is moderated by David J. Bodney, a partner at Ballard Spahr LLP.
