Yale Hosts Panel Discussion on Media Coverage of Corporate Corruption

William H. Donaldson

On November 15, former chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission William H. Donaldson will lead a panel discussion at Yale on how the news media cover corporate scandals such as Enron and WorldCom.

The free and public forum, titled “The Media and Corporate Corruption,” will take place at Luce Hall, 34 Hillhouse Avenue, at 7:45 p.m.

Donaldson, the founding dean of the Yale School of Management, will present an overview of securities laws and the regulatory role of the SEC.

The panelists are Floyd Norris, chief financial correspondent of The New York Times and The International Herald Tribune; Amy Borrus, Business Week correspondent and winner of the 1992 Overseas Press Club Award; and Humphrey Taylor, chairman of The Harris Poll and manager of the world’s first tracking polls.

Sponsored by the department of political science at Yale, this panel is the fourth in a series of discussions organized by Stanley Flink for his seminar called “Ethics and the Media.” Previous panel discussions in the series have focused on media coverage of national security, military operations in Iraq and the presidential election of 2004. Governor Howard Dean, Seymour Hersh, Strobe Talbott, Congressman Christopher Shays and Evan Thomas were among the participants in past forums.
