Former NPR International Correspondent Corey Flintoff will give a timely talk entitled “Resurgent Russia: the misinformation, disinformation, propaganda and outright lies that cloud America’s discussions about Russia” on Wednesday, Oct. 5, at 7 p.m., at the Fairfield Theatre Company, 70 Sanford Street, Fairfield.

Flintoff has just returned from Russia where he spent 4 years reporting on the Western world’s biggest challenger. He covered the Ukrainian revolution, Russia’s seizure of Crimea, the war in eastern Ukraine, the downing of Malaysian Airlines’ Flight 17, and the Olympic sports doping scandal, among other key events.

The talk will be moderated by Ebong Udoma, WSHU’s Senior Political Reporter and host of Capitol Avenue. The event is part of WSHU’s acclaimed “Join the Conversation” lecture series, and will feature an audience Q & A.

General admission tickets are $15; a limited number of benefit tickets are available for $500/pair and include reserved VIP seating and a post-event meet & greet with Corey Flintoff. All tickets are available at wshu.org.

Corey Flintoff’s journalism career has taken him to more than 50 countries, most recently to cover the civil war in Libya, the revolution in Egypt and the war in Afghanistan. His appearance is generously sponsored by the McKinnis Family of Fairfield.
