  • Eric appears at Double Exposure Festival to speak on journalism during COVID

    October 14, 2021  3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

    Eric speaks on a panel called UNDER COVER OF COVID: The coronavirus pandemic is reshaping the ground rules for accountability journalism. In the U.S., the pandemic has nudged the judiciary toward greater acceptance of cameras in the courtroom and virtual attendance of trials, while also rendering it more difficult for journalists, filmmakers and the public to access physical materials related to trials. This panel will examine the enduring consequences of the pandemic for investigative journalists and documentary filmmakers.
