The Center for Public Integrity is an online news organization specializing in investigative journalism. Reporters in the Center's nonprofit newsroom cover a variety of topics, including politics, the environment and national security.

Chris joined The Center for Public Integrity in September 2012 as a member of the nonprofit news organization's "Consider the Source" team. 

He reported about judicial ethics issues for a year and a half before becoming the lead reporter for the Center's "Misinformation Industry" project, which investigates industries' efforts to influence policy by misleading the public.

In April 2015, Chris appeared on C-SPAN to discuss an investigative series he co-reported with colleague Erin Quinn about food additives. 

Chris co-wrote the script for this animated video explaining how food companies can add ingredients to food without even telling the FDA.
