“Spotlight” Editor Marty Baron
On February 28, 2021, Washington Post Executive Editor Martin “Marty” Baron retired from journalism. His legacy and his influence on the clergy sexual abuse survivors’ movement cannot be understated.
It’s been almost 20 years since the Boston Globe Spotlight team—under Baron’s management and direction—took a megaphone to their international media platform to tell the world what all of us here have known for decades: There was—and is—a child sexual abuse and cover-up crisis in the Catholic Church.
We are deeply grateful for this.
