  1. "While ProPublica is largely funded by former banker Herb Sandler, it has also received funding from the Knight Foundation. ProPublica and the Knight Foundation have various connections. For example, Paul Steiger, President of ProPublica, is a trustee of the Knight Foundation.[9] In like manner, Alberto Ibarguen, the President and CEO of the Knight Foundation is on the board of ProPublica.[10] In 2010, it received a two-year contribution of $125,000 each year from George Soros' Open Society Foundations.

    ProPublica has attracted attention for the salaries it pays its top executives.[11][12] The head of ProPublica, Paul Steiger, was paid $571,687 in 2008, according to the company's tax filings.[13] The managing editor, Stephen Engelberg, was paid $343,463.[14] The large salaries have been widely criticized by other journalists and even some in the non-profit world as excessive."

    Also wenn ich mir die Finanzierung von "ProPublica" und das Personal, deren Verflechtung und Werdegang ansehe, habe ich nicht grade das Gefühl, daß man von dort erwarten könnte, unvoreingenommen informiert zu werden.
