ProPublica’s Pulitzers (and Other Great Work)

I’ve had my issues with ProPublica in the past, and haven’t changed my mind on what I said back then.

But the organization, as I also have said, is doing brilliant work — and I don’t mean solely the great stuff by Sheri Fink that won a Pulitzer Prize today and was a finalist for another.

Last week, ProPublica and NPR released a report that everyone should read and listen to. It exposed some of slimest financial dealings known to date about the financial bubble that nearly brought down the global economy: in this case, a hedge fund’s working both sides of a street in ways should make you sick, and absolutely furious.

Kudos to all. This is journalism at its finest.
