Trump Inc.: Covering the Trump Family Businesses

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Media outlets have rushed to establish beats reporting on the business interests of the President and those close to him. Investigative reporters are now probing everything from his decades-old ties with Russian businessmen to recent goings on at Trump-branded properties in order to uncover the hidden details and possible conflicts in the businesses run by the President and his family.

The McGraw Center for Business Journalism will bring together several of the top reporters and editors on the beat to discuss what it took to produce their pieces. We’ll talk about how they developed their ideas and approached the reporting, what investigative techniques they’ve employed, and how they’ve broken through when the inevitable roadblocks arose. We’ll also talk about where the story goes from here and what areas deserve further investigation.
