Komen Foundation, Planned Parenthood, Lessons Learned

Nancy Brinker of Susan G. Komen uses all the right technocratic buzzwords ("excellence in grant making," "translating mission," "metrics," "outcomes," "direct service providers") in an interview with an Andrea Mitchell who responds with moral indignation at the way the foundation dumped Planned Parenthood. If only we had this kind of press coverage more often. Via Jay Rosen. The outcomes here are ugly to see. Then comes the oops, we apologize. What this all may demonstrate clearly enough is that philanthropy no matter how scientific its methodology is both personal and politcal.
