Center for Public Integrity
Since comedian John Oliver recommended people donate to the liberal journalism site ProPublica, donations have been pouring in, according to The New York Times. The Times also reported that nonprofit journalism in general has seen a spike in donations (especially small ones) since Donald Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States.
As NewsBusters previously reported, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders followed the motto of “Do as I say, not as I do” when members of the “mainstream media” criticized the socialist Vermont senator for buying a third house.
On Wednesday, Dave Levinthal -- senior reporter for the nonprofit, nonpartisan Center for Public Integrity -- posted an article exposing another example of Sanders' motto by revealing the delaying tactics that enabled the “vociferous supporter of political transparency” to request three extensions and avoid posting details of his personal finances.
Building on a long week of anti-coal attacks by the media and the Environmental Protection Agency, ABC’s June 5 “World News” revived another attack on the coal industry. ABC hyped a 2013 investigation that it conducted in partnership with the Soros-funded Center for Public Integrity (CPI). It alleged that the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions had essentially been bought off by coal companies to ignore cases of black lung disease in miners.
ABC’s David Muir declared a “victory a long time in the making,” Johns Hopkins’ Dr. Paul Wheeler for allegedly “working for the coal company.”
