Examining BBC Report on Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

January 6, 2012

"The BBC has done an extensive (40 minute) report on the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation titled 'Fortress Bill,'" which "is available for [four] more days online and will be rebroadcast on Sunday, Jan. 8," KPLU 88.5's "Humanosphere" blog reports. Commenting on the piece, KPLU's Tom Paulson writes, "Perhaps the BBC report indicates the mainstream media is poised to take a more critical tack examining the nature of philanthropy and global health. ... What's needed is a more open and realistic dialogue about how best to fight inequity and poverty -- one that can simultaneously hold the powerful to account while also accepting that some of the super-rich may actually also want to make the world a better place" (1/4).
