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.
