Media passing on Greenpeace investigation

When a major multinational group gets hit with charges of laundering money, you would think it would be big international news.  But apparently not if that major multinational’s name happens to be Greenpeace.  This, according to columnist Joel Mowbray, who notes that even though a complaint has been filed with the IRS alleging that Greenpeace engaged in massive transfers of money to skirt U.S. tax laws, only a dozen or so stories — in both print and television — bothered to cover the news.  But with the complaint alleging that a tax-exempt Greepeace fund transferred a total of $24 million to other non-exempt subgroups, this story about Greenpeace’s green may not simply slink away.
