We’re pleased to announce that MSNBC’s Katy Tur will be our guest at this year’s TribFeast! She was the breakout star among reporters during the 2016 campaign — making the most of an assignment to cover Donald Trump, who was given little chance of winning the GOP primary, let alone the presidency — even by fellow Republicans. Over the course of 16 months, Tur was called out repeatedly by the candidate and his supporters as a “liar” and worse — previewing the now-familiar refrain that the media is dishonest and journalists are enemies of the people. But she stood her ground, and viewers and fans sprung to her defense, adopting the hashtag #imwithtur.
Unbelievable, her front-row account of the craziest campaign in American history, will soon be published. It tells the story of what it was like to report on the most combative and volatile major-party candidate ever to run for office and win. Join us to hear her insider tales from the trail in conversation with Tribune CEO Evan Smith and go home with a complimentary copy of her must-read book.
Proceeds from TribFeast, our special event during the Texas Tribune Festival, support the Tribune’s ambitious, award-winning work. We hope you’ll join other thought leaders and philanthropists from across the state, including elected officials, policymakers and big-brand journalists on the Tribune Festival program!
