Now there’s a headline with a lot of words I like. ProPublica could be a godsend that fills the investigative-journalism gap left by massive budget cuts. Or it could be a way for creator and chairman Herbert Sandler to shape the news. Sandler, who last year he donated $500 million to various causes, mostly non-Jewish, gets a mention in a story I have in tomorrow’s Jewish Journal about the new world of Jewish philanthropy. More on that later.
