Speaker: Dean Starkman, Editor 'The Audit', Columbia Journalism Review Dean Starkman is the assistant managing editor and Kingsford Capital Fellow at Columbia Journalism Review. He runs "The Audit", CJR's online business-press section that describes itself as "your guide to the business press as it scrambles to cover a global financial crisis while its own financial basis collapses". Starkman's stories have been published in high-profile newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post. In July, he wrote a major profile for The Nation on Pulitzer-prize winning New York Times reporter Gretchen Morgenson, who last September revealed how the $85 billion U.S. government rescue package of fallen insurance giant American International Group directly benefited Wall Street's investment banks.
