Beginning with last year’s explosive Pulitzer Prize-winning New Yorker investigation on movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s history of sexual assault, and continuing with his recent reports exposing similar allegations against CBS head Les Moonves, Ronan Farrow has become a leading journalist in exposing how influential figures in media and politics abuse power and hide sexual misconduct. For his role in exposing Weinstein and helping spur the #MeToo movement, Farrow was the recipient of the 2018 CJF Special Citation for excellence in journalism.
In Farrow’s bestselling book, War on Peace: The End of Diplomacy and the Decline of American Influence, the former diplomat pivots to a different realm of power, that of America’s influence abroad. Hear Farrow’s take on the challenge of changing cultures and power dynamics, in conversation with Robyn Doolittle, investigative reporter with The Globe and Mail.
U.S. foreign policy is undergoing a dire transformation, forever changing America’s place in the world. The U.S. has become a nation that shoots first and asks questions later. In an astonishing journey from the corridors of power in Washington, DC, to some of the most remote and dangerous places on earth—Afghanistan, Somalia, and North Korea among them—Ronan Farrow illuminates one of the most consequential and poorly understood changes in American history.
