      From CNN, “The Red Cross called the report by ProPublica and National Public Radio as lacking in ‘balance, context and accuracy ... which follows the pattern of all their previous Red Cross stories.’” {1}

        Thank you for your response.
        The excerpt below was taken from the link you provided.

        "The news story relied on Red Cross internal documents, field reporting in Haiti and interviews with Haitian and former Red Cross officials, including the agency's former chief of the Haitian shelter program, Lee Malany.

        Malany quit after agency officials "did not seem to have any idea how to spend millions of dollars set aside for housing," according to the outlets' report.

        Controversy over transparency
        The Red Cross also declined repeatedly to disclose details on how exactly money was spent in Haiti and instead provided only broad categories of expenditures, despite a pledge by CEO Gail McGovern that her agency would "lead the effort in transparency," the news report said.

        A CNN review of the Red Cross' tax filings from July 2010 to June 2014 shows no detailed expenditures for its numerous relief programs, including in Haiti.

        Those documents, called Form 990, do show details on salaries, including McGovern's $597,961 total compensation in the most recent filing."
