The Center for Investigative Reporting

For more than three decades, the Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR) has relentlessly pursued and revealed injustices that otherwise would have remained hidden from the public. Today, CIR is working at the forefront of journalistic innovation to tell stories that make a difference and reach diverse audiences of all ages, across the aisle and worldwide. CIR’s stories have appeared in hundreds of news outlets, including NPR News, PBS FRONTLINE, PBS NewsHour, CNN, the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The Washington Post, the San Francisco Chronicle, The Sacramento Bee, The Daily Beast and American Public Media’s Marketplace. CIR has received numerous journalism awards, including an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Silver Baton, George Polk Awards, Emmy Awards, Investigative Reporters and Editors Awards, and the MacArthur Award for Creative & Effective Institutions. It was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2012 and 2013.
