  • CBS THIS MORNING: Methylene Chloride Consumer Alert

  • CBS THIS MORNING: Cobalt Mining in the DRC

    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.
  • The Genetic Testing Gold Rush

    With billions of dollars to be made and inadequate regulation, the exploding genetic testing industry is a veritable wild west, ripe for fraud. In this six-month investigation broadcast on CBS This Morning and CBS Evening News we sought to expose the charlatans and con men exploiting the industry’s exponential growth—and patients’ trust—for profit.
  • Motorcycle Madness

    When a video surfaced depicting a group of motorcyclists following and eventually assaulting the driver of a passing SUV, all eyes turned to Senior Correspondent John Miller, a former Deputy Commissioner of the NYPD, for information and analysis. Only on CBS This Morning, Kevin Bresloff, the man who shot the original helmet camera video of the incident, broke his silence. John Miller’s report included an interview with Bresloff’s lawyer, who provided us with his original helmet camera video and an explanation of what happened that day. Mr. Miller was one of few able to collect information about the motorcycle ride and assault in the aftermath of the video, when the NYPD said very little about the incident to the public. In addition to reporting immediate and accurate information, Mr. Miller was later able to get the first on-camera conversation with an involved officer who had been undercover and taken a week to come forward following the assault.
  • State Department Cover-Up?

    CBS This Morning reported on allegations of a cover-up inside the State Department and revealed a practice by high level management at the agency of sweeping cases of alleged criminal behavior by employees under the rug. At the center of our story was an internal Inspector General (IG) memo obtained by CBS News that described in detail eight cases of alleged criminal misconduct where investigations were either never launched or halted by senior State Department officials. The author of the memo was upset that both senior State Department management as well as the IG’s office was not acting on the quashed criminal investigations.
