Lowell Bergman

Investigative Journalist

Lowell Bergman was one of the founders of the Center for Investigative Reporting. He spent 22 years as a producer first with ABC News and then CBS, where he was a staff producer at "60 Minutes." Since leaving CBS in 1999, he has been a correspondent and producer for PBS "FRONTLINE". For a decade from 1999-2008 he was an investigative correspondent for the New York Times. A series he co-authored on worker safety for The New York Times in a joint project with "FRONTLINE" won the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. It was the first time a print/television collaboration was recognized by both a Pulitzer and its equivalent in broadcasting, the Peabody and Alfred I. DuPont awards. Bergman's earlier work on the CIA and cocaine, corruption in Mexico and the war on drugs has been the recipient of DuPonts, Peabody Awards and Emmys. His investigation of the tobacco industry for "60 Minutes" was chronicled in the feature film, "The Insider." Bergman graduated from the University of Wisconsin and was a graduate fellow in philosophy at the University of California at San Diego.

And there are others who are using misinformation and deception to try to sow doubt in our minds about whether there is any problem at all.
