    David McCraw serves as the principal newsroom lawyer for The New York Times.  He has spent 18 years at The Times and currently holds the position of Senior Vice President and Deputy General Counsel.  He is the author of the book “Truth in Our Times: Inside the Fight for Press Freedom in the Age of Alternative Facts” (St. Martin’s 2019), a first-person account of the legal battles that helped shape The Times’s coverage of Donald Trump, Harvey Weinstein, national security, and the rise of political partisanship in America.

    In addition to advising the newsroom on libel and other legal issues, Mr. McCraw is one of the nation’s most prolific litigators of Freedom of Information cases and oversees international security for Times journalists working in high-risk areas.

    He is a visiting lecturer at Harvard Law School and an adjunct professor at the NYU Law School.  Mr. McCraw is a graduate of the University of Illinois, Cornell University, and Albany Law School.

    “Freedom of the press has been a right of the American people since the First Amendment. It’s up there with freedom of speech, right to peaceably assemble, right to bear arms, and the right against unreasonable searches and seizures. With GDPR, CCPA, and other privacy laws that have been established in the last few years, is there a conflict between these two principles? Does the right to be forgotten include the right to remove news coverage related to you? Does the right for privacy affect whistleblowing cases? Join us as David McCraw, Vice President and Deputy General Counsel at The New York Times Company, discusses these issues and implications that could affect us for generations to come.”
