Grady College guest lecturer to look at truth and lies from those in power

The Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication will host Charles Lewis, professor of journalism at American University, for a lecture on Sept. 17 at 2:30 p.m. in the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries.

Lewis will discuss topics from his book, 935 Lies: The Future of Truth and the Decline of America’s Moral Integrity, involving the most significant misrepresentations by those in power in the U.S., government and major corporations, as well as the role of journalists in exposing them.

Lewis is a tenured professor of journalism and the executive editor of the Investigative Reporting Workshop at the American University School of Communication in Washington, D.C. Lewis is a former producer for ABC News and 60 Minutes, and founded the Center for Public Integrity, which published roughly 300 investigative reports under his 15-year leadership and won more than 30 national journalism awards.

There will be a reception at 3:30 p.m. following the lecture.
