Ted Talks: Why journalists have an obligation to challenge power


This Ted Talks is subtitled in English.

“You can kick Jorge Ramos out of your press conference (as Donald Trump infamously did in 2015), but you can never silence him. A reporter for more than 30 years, Ramos believes that a journalist’s responsibility is to question and challenge those in power. In this compelling talk — which earned him a standing ovation midway through — Ramos explains why, in certain circumstances, he believes journalists must take sides.” (In Spanish with English subtitles.)

This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by the editors on the Ted Talks home page.
