AMMAN — David Cay Johnston, award-winning journalist and author of the bestselling book “The Making of Donald Trump”, will be the keynote speaker at ARIJ’s upcoming 10th Annual Forum for Arab Investigative Journalism to be held from December 1-3, according to a statement from the group.

Johnston whose exposes of fake news forced a broadcast chain to close, according to the statement, said he wants to encourage Arab colleagues working against all political, legal, societal and professional odds, to hold officials to account.

One of America’s top investigative reporters, Johnston won a Pulitzer Prize in 2001 at the New York Times for exposing tax inequities, the statement said.  The gathering is the eighth in Jordan since the launch in 2005 of ARIJ to promote investigative journalism in a region where it is mostly absent, according to the statement.
