Tony Burman visited The University of Western Ontario in November to deliver this year’s Clissold Lecture in Journalism. His talk was entitled, Hiding from the World: The Media’s Retreat from Global News Coverage. Burman spent more than 35 years at the CBC as editor in chief before moving to Doha, Qatar to be managing director of Al Jazeera English. A few days after he visited Western, Al Jazeera English was approved for Canadian distribution. A portion of his speech is featured in the latest Western in Five podcast.
