Seen the Charity Navigator report for the Komen Foundation?

Oh looky, all 591 comments were erased. All I see is "591 reviews total. Average rating: 1.3 out of 5"

Try the "Archived Comments". You see stuff like this, over and over.....

"Don't take my word for it, check out this link:

I'm really quite disgusted with the actions of this "charity" looks like its just another corporation trying to gain market share. Suing other charities for copy write infringement is not a good use of donations meant to fight cancer. Absolutely Disgusting."

Apparently this is how Charity Navigator works nowadays--
see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.

And Twitter and Facebook are on fire with angry rants against Komen
and their fearless leader, Nancy Brinker. They are having a "bad week".

Oh, btw, here's a factoid I don't see on Charity Navigator:
"Komen made $471m last year, and only $75m went to research. For what cure?"

So much for Charity Navigator.

Puts the Wikimedia Foundation into some perspective, eh?
