International Discussion Series: Beyond the Trolls: How to Build a Trustworthy News Source in Russia

Beyond the Trolls: How to Build a Trustworthy News Source in Russia
The speaker Elizaveta Osetinskaya is a Knight Journalism Fellow at Stanford. She was until May 2016 chief editor of RBC Media Holding, Russia’s leading privately owned media company. She led a transformation of RBC’s news operations resulting in high-quality journalism. She and two other senior editors were abruptly fired a few weeks after RBC, the only major Russian news outlet, covered the Panama Papers revelation that a Russian businessman with ties to President Vladimir Putin had funneled billions of dollars through offshore accounts. Before joining RBC, Osetinskaya was editor-in-chief of Forbes Russia, considered by many to be the only independent and reliable business magazine in Russia.
This talk is about her personal story, the investigations her team made under her leadership at RBC Media, her project at Stanford in context of the future of journalism and of the current US-Russia relationship.
