Date: May - July 2018



Our CBS This Morning investigation into cobalt mining in the DRC and its subsequent impact was the kind of journalism we feel privileged to do. We saw an injustice being done in a corner of the world most Americans rarely get to see, and uniquely that injustice could be directly be tied to our everyday lives. The process of tracing our batteries to the small hands that help to make them was a 6-month marathon of searching for clues in what seemed like a black hole of information.
