Carl Ginsburg has reported on and advocated in behalf of injured individuals and groups. As a producer at NBC and subsequently CBS News in the 1980s and 90s he covered courts, government agencies and business. Later, his investigative work took special aim at the healthcare sector. A Carter Center Fellowship in mental health affairs allowed Carl to firmly set his focus on healthcare matters nationwide and his published works have appeared in The Nation magazine and aired on network and cable TV programs. Carl also taught journalism to graduate students at New York University's School of Journalism and at Hunter College. He has lectured in the United States and abroad on methods of investigation, legal harm and the political economy of healthcare.
In the late 1990s, Carl began a collaboration with Howard Pierce, a Tyler Cooper partner, to develop methods of investigating healthcare abuse, with particular emphasis on witness development. In this capacity he has traveled throughout the United States seeking the participation of first-hand observers to abuse and fraud in the healthcare system. Carl is a graduate of Northeastern University School of Law and Columbia University.
