Report: ProPublica under fire from conservative news readers

ProPublica, a donor-funded news organization known for its extremist left-leaning journalism, is facing criticism from conservatives who allege not only bias, but a lack of transparency regarding the organization’s funding sources, according to a blistering report by the New York Post.

Founded in 2007 by former Wall Street Journal editor Paul Steiger, ProPublica describes itself as an independent nonprofit newsroom dedicated to exposing abuses of power and breaches of public trust. It has strong ties to plutocrat George Soros, who funds Marxist causes.

ProPublica is a significant funder of the work of the Anchorage Daily News, starting at least as far back as 2019. The left-leaning bias of the Anchorage Daily News was one of the main impetuses for the creation of Must Read Alaska.

The conservatives in the New York Post story claim ProPublica’s reporters and editors disproportionately target conservatives and Republican organizations for their alleged lack of transparency, all the while failing to disclose the names of its own donors, according to NY Post writer Dana Kennedy.

ProPublica reported donations exceeding $35 million in 2021, surpassing the IRS requirements for donor disclosure, Kennedy writes.

  1. ‘Moral force’ ProPublica under fire for taking millions from secret donors they court at ritzy parties.
    The Anchorage Daily News is GEORGE SOROS through Pro Publica– 100%
    THE ADN lost all credibility years back and low and behold a Pulitzer Prize appears on the horizon.

  2. When the mob comes after Suzanne and Amy not one person is going to lift a finger to help.. nobody’s helping Trump and he actually had balls and told us the truth. The irony is that Suzanne and Amy are going to be destroyed by these people and they didn’t even say anything that would have helped us fight this anyway!!! They can’t even hold their head high as a martyr because they were blocking the people who were trying to warn them years ago.. what a waste. They’re almost as bad life as he watered down Christianity. Thanks girls

  3. In Juneau ProPublica has strong and continual ties to the power elites including current and former elected officials, public employee union officials (who in some cases are the same people who are paid by trade union members), the education block, public radio, the League of Women Voters, Planned Parenthood and municipal government. The difficulty in being physically present in Juneau experienced by Alaskans who don’t live here helps the association with ProPublica persist and wield its power. While Alaska is fortunate that MustRead keeps an eye on Juneau, the state capital, the weakness of the Juneau Empire and the sale of AM radio to California interests helps ProPublica throw its weight around. It’s conspirational (not actually a word, I think), and aspirational, but also dishonest and corrupt, and it’s disturbing to Alaskans in other parts of the state.

  4. I didn’t know that Ryan Binkley and his family (owners of the ADN) were such radical, hyper Left-wing Democrats. I always thought the Binkleys were registered Republicans. Apparently, young Binkley has been brainwashed.
