This type of confirmation bias concerned Baron, but what he found more alarming was news outlets that distort facts until they become untrue. He alluded to Clyde Lewis, a talk radio host and conspiracy theorist, as an example of this issue for perpetuating the idea that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was a hoax.
“The first mission of the newspaper is to tell the truth as nearly as the truth can be ascertained,” Baron said, quoting the principles set forth by Eugene Meyer, who bought The Post in 1933. “No matter how murky our future, let’s not forget that we have something meaningful to do.”
After Baron’s speech, he sat down with Aoun for a Q&A, fielding questions from the president and audience members about The Washington Post, Spotlight and social media. The final question came from Aoun, who asked Baron if he would like to teach.
“I don’t know, would I have tenure?” Baron joked.
A cocktail reception followed the event, where students and professors mingled and discussed the future.
“He nailed it,” McKie said. “Both the circumstances for what the future holds and how we ought to go about resolving it, he nailed it.”
Some, like senior international business major Gareth McGrath, were glad that Spotlight played a minimal role in the presentation. McGrath was previously a journalism major who still stays informed on the subject. He said he liked that questions from Aoun and the audience focused less on Baron’s past and more on the future.
“Like [Baron] said, I don’t think anyone knows exactly what the future holds,” McGrath said. “That’s what makes it so exciting.”
