A.C. Thompson is a staff reporter at ProPublica, an investigative news non-profit. His brand of forensic journalism helped lead to the exoneration of two San Francisco men wrongly convicted of murder; exposed the faulty evidence used to send a grandmother to prison; and prompted the U.S. Department of Justice to open a string of criminal cases against New Orleans police officers and file hate crimes charges against a white vigilante. In recent years Thompson has worked extensively in television, spearheading the reporting for PBS Frontline documentaries, and serving as a consultant for the HBO series Treme, which fictionalized his life story.
