Mark Smith is the investigative producer for WFAA-TV in Dallas. Two series he produced each won broadcast journalism's most prestigious honors: the Peabody Award and duPont-Columbia University Silver Baton. One of the series revealed that Texas regulators often ignored possible fraud and questionable practices by workers' compensation insurance carriers. The other series detailed how paid confidential informants planted billiard chalk to contrive drug cases against dozens of innocent Mexican immigrants. The series led to the dismissal of drug charges against more than 70 defendants and prison terms for three informants and a police officer.
