For the start of this academic year, the School of Journalism’s guest of honour was award-winning investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson. Formerly an anchor for CNN and CBS News and now host of Full Measure, a US investigative news series, Attkisson has won multiple Emmy Awards and published two best-selling works of non-fiction, The Smear and Stonewalled. In her keynote speech to students, she discussed the state of journalism in a context of “fake news” and addressed the challenges facing anyone wishing to enter the “dynamic, troubled but important and exciting profession of journalism”.
