The Guardian has kicked off a new project investigating inequality of all kinds, all over the world. The paper's 'Inequality Project' is supported by the giant NewYork-based liberal-orientated Ford Foundation. The paper report's that all the content is editorially independent and is anchored from the Guardian’s London office and edited by Mike Herd.
The only restriction on the Guardian’s coverage is where the Ford Foundation is prohibited under US law from directly funding or earmarking funds to: (a) carry on propaganda, or otherwise to attempt to influence any legislation through an attempt to affect the opinion of the general public, or through communication with any member or employee of a legislative body; (b) conduct programmes to register voters; or (c) to undertake any activity for any purpose which is not exclusively charitable, scientific, literary or educational. This means any communications to the public in which a view is expressed about a specific legislative proposal, and the recipients of the communications are urged through a “call to action” to contact government officials, must provide a reasoned, objective consideration of facts and issues in a full and fair manner that enables third parties to develop their own positions on any legislation that may be discussed. You can read more about content funding at the Guardian here.
