James Stewart: Tangled Webs: How False Statements Are Undermining America
Pulitzer Prize-Winning Journalist; Former Wall Street Journal Page One Editor; Staff Writer, The New Yorker; Author, Den of Thieves
In conversation with Kirk Hanson, Executive Director, Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, University of Santa Clara
Business journalist Stewart says that a “perjury outbreak” is symptomatic of a broader breakdown of ethics in American life. It isn’t just the judicial system that relies on an honor code: Academia, business, medicine and government all do. He explores the age-old tensions between greed and justice, self-interest and public interest. Stewart seeks to reaffirm the importance of truth.
