Margaret Ebrahim is a senior editor at the Investigative Reporting Workshop. For more than two decades, Ebrahim has been an award-winning investigative producer and journalist focusing on accountability journalism in the nation’s capital and beyond.
Ebrahim was a producer for the CBS News program 60 Minutes II and the ABC News Brian Ross investigative unit. She also produced documentaries for the HDNet news and documentary program Dan Rather Reports, and she was a reporter on the multimedia investigative unit at the Associated Press.
While Ebrahim pursued a Masters of Arts in U.S. Foreign Policy at American University in Washington D.C., she helped to build one of the nation’s first non-profit, investigative journalism groups, the Center for Public Integrity, along side the organization’s founder Charles Lewis. While she was at the Center, she won the group’s first award in 1996 from the Society of Professional Journalists for “The Fat Cat Hotel,” an examination of the connection between overnight stays in the Lincoln Bedroom during the Clinton presidency and financial contributions to the Democratic Party as well as the Clinton re-election campaign.
