“The lesson of this remarkable conference that commemorates Harry Evans is about what’s important.”

Legendary Watergate Reporter Carl Bernstein About

A Truth-telling Legacy

Pioneering British newspaperman Sir Harry Evans (1928-2020) was one of the giants of post-war journalism. The award-winning work he spearheaded as editor of The Northern Echo, The Sunday Times, and The Times set the gold standard for courageous investigative journalism. For Sir Harry, trust in journalism was essential and the debasement of fact-based reporting was a serious concern for functioning democracy.

To reignite Sir Harry’s values, Truth Tellers champions the work of today’s investigative journalists.
