Chris Young

Reporter  The Center for Public Integrity

Chris Young is a reporter for the Center’s Consider the Source project, where he covers Washington, D.C.’s “misinformation industry.” Before joining the Center as an American University Fellow in September 2012, he worked for five years as a reporter for Pittsburgh City Paper, the Steel City’s alternative weekly newspaper. A staffer since he graduated from Duquesne University in 2007, Chris covered education, neighborhoods and politics for the paper. A number of his stories won first-place awards from the Press Club of Western Pennsylvania, including an investigative piece that revealed problematic billing practices at the Pittsburgh Water & Sewer Authority and a story that documented the difficulties of diagnosing and treating bipolar disorder in children. Chris earned his master’s degree in journalism and public affairs from American University in August 2013.
