The Pro-Truth Pledge Central Coordination Committee (PTP CCC) has revoked the Journalism Reclamation Project’s membership in the Pro-Truth Pledge.
Here’s the scoop. We got a complaint that the Journalism Reclamation Project misled their employees and other organizations in public statements about both JRP’s financial stability and plans in promoting public trust in journalism. We sent an an email to the JRP leader and general address, and the email bounced. We investigated, and found that their website no longer works. Their last LinkedIn update was 4 months ago.
It appears that the organization folded. Thus, the PTP CCC decided to avoid the usual accountability mechanism of an action alert and media release, because the organization is no longer around, and thus the reputational pressure is not relevant. We simply removed it from the public figures page.
