In Perversion of Justice: The Jeffrey Epstein Story, Miami Herald investigative reporter Julie K. Brown revisits the case of justice-a-la-carte for the billionaire title subject in his case of soliciting prostitution from minors. Her resulting series helped bring about the arrest of Epstein, his main accomplice, and a Trump cabinet member. Moderated by Karen Burkett Rundlet, Knight Foundation Journalism Program director.
“Knight Foundation invests in the future of local news and journalism, through all sorts of projects, methods, and models across the U.S. In recent years, we’ve all seen what happens when communities are targeted with misinformation and disinformation. Democracy will only remain healthy when the public is informed by facts and in-depth, contextual reporting. And trust in journalism is still higher at the local level. You trust the reporters you run into at your local supermarket or community events, like Julie. She and her colleagues know your community, our community deeply, because they live here and are invested in it.” – Karen Burkett Rundlet
