Reveal digs deep – and gets results. This week’s episode shines a light on three recent investigations that made a splash.
By mining data from 31 million records, we discover a pattern of mortgage loan denials to applicants of color in more than 60 U.S. metropolitan areas. Our story leads to investigations and demands for accountability at the federal, state and city levels.
While many people of color have trouble getting mortgages, we investigate one high-end property that didn’t even need one. Our investigation shows the bizarre way that Donald Trump ended up with a $10 million Beverly Hills mansion.
Next, we revisit our investigation with our partners at KQED into California’s deadliest wildfires to determine what’s being done to ensure that emergency response failures are not repeated as the next wildfire season approaches.
