Ethics lecture draws hundreds

Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Anthony Shadid spoke to an overflow crowd at UW-Madison on Dec. 2 for the center’s inaugural ethics lecture. Shadid, a New York Times correspondent in Baghdad and UW alumnus, spoke with passion and candor about “The Truths We Tell: Reporting on Faith, War and the Fate of Iraq.”

Shadid’s lecture, the centerpiece of a two-day visit to campus, was organized by the Center for Journalism Ethics and the Lubar Institute for the Study of Abrahamic Religions. Many local journalists covered the event, including UW-Madison journalism students from Prof. Stephen Vaughn’s reporting course.  The center is pleased to feature stories from students Lindsey Cohen, Jack Doyle, and Frank Otto.
