Summaries of Presentations

Ken Freed: I focus on the difficulties for a journalist covering globalization and its ramifications. Most of the problems arise out of an emotionalism that has led to misinformation, disinformation and a climate so filled with mistrust and lies that covering the subject is like crossing a minefield for journalists.

As examples, I will look briefly at my experiences in Argentina, Canada and Haiti in hopes of exposing the strengths and weaknesses of the debate over globalization.
