Newspapers and other media outlets have dramatically changed how they present the news, using graphics to drive stories, following a “mobile imperative,” and even developing experiments in augmented reality. Last year the New York Times issued a manifesto of sorts, arguing that the “report needs to become more visual.” So how are news consumers responding to—and benefiting from—these efforts? Join our panel of newsroom insiders, Steve Duenes, the assistant masthead editor at the New York Times, Lazaro Gamio, visuals editor at Axios, and Jonathon Berlin, who leads the data and graphics team at the Chicago Tribune, for an in-depth look at media’s brave new visual age.
Steve Duenes is an Assistant Masthead Editor at The New York Times, focusing on digital storytelling and visualization. He manages the Graphics Department, Interactive News Technology and Digital Design — three units that are responsible for all kinds of visual journalism, from reporting and design to interactive maps, data visualization, motion graphics and multimedia. Steve has been the Graphics Director at the Times since 2004, and he has been a contributor to The New Yorker magazine and a faculty member at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
Lazaro Gamio is the Visuals Editor at Axios, where he oversees the production of charts, maps, interactive graphics and editorial illustrations. Before Axios, he worked at the Washington Post as an assignment editor, leading a group of visual journalists through pitching, developing and perfecting data visualization projects for both print and web.

If CHF had to pick just one event to sum up the current zeitgeist, it would have to be what we've all come to know as #MeToo. From the stories of sexual abuse and violence relayed by women from all walks of life, to the toppling of many long-standing and powerful entertainment and media figures, to the unprecedented-in-all-its-graphic-detail mode of reporting and witnessing, this movement has left no corner of American society and culture untouched. Join New York Times business reporter Emily Steel, whose reporting exposed the extent of sexual harassment allegations against Former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly, Op-Ed columnist Michelle Goldberg, Chicago Bureau Chief Monica Davey and Rutgers University professor Brittney Cooper for a conversation about what's to come to pass - and is still to come - around #MeToo.
