News organizations through which CIR investigations have appeared include: ABC World News Tonight, ABC 20/20, CBS Evening News, CBS 60 Minutes, NBC Nightly News, PBS Frontline, CNN, The New York Times, USA Today, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, National Public Radio, U.S. News & World Report, Mother Jones, and The Nation.
