Huff Post’s Philanthropy Reporting Criticized

from The Chronicle of Philanthropy:

Huffington Post’s Nonprofit Reporting Under Fire

The Huffington Post’s philanthropy reporting is under fire for working with a fund-raising company to produce content, a relationship some journalism experts fear might cause ethical problems.

In October, the online newspaper started Impact, a section dedicated to promoting charitable causes and issues. But while the reporting carries the Huffington Post name, the content is produced by CauseCast, a company that helps charities raise money. The two organizations share advertising revenue raised by Impact.
