With this Oxfam complaint there has been an argument brought up about how negative stories about charities result in reduced donations. It's why Oxfam PR dept goes all out to suppress negative stories. The argument being don't say anything bad about us or babies will die! It's a stupid argument but does it have any merit? Personally any malfeasance in a charity should be rooted out and if serious then made public. MSF actually does this with regular reports made public on their performance and includes negative findings. They are apparently at the opposite end of the spectrum to the Oxfam approach. So any views on this aspect of a current news story?
