who will be next World Bank President What will they do


We're in the papers! worldbankpresident.org media mentions. We've been busy bringing you the latest on this ever-expanding saga, sifting your correspondence and doing the other work we had planned for these weeks. But a number of people have been telling us that this website has been picked up across the world's media.

We have noticed that several journalists have been using material and specific phrases from this site and are very happy with that. Even happier that several outlets have been mentioning the site itself so their readers can come and help themselves. Here's a selection.

Web site revived to speculate on World Bank chief, Reuters, 14 April.

Wolfowitz Under Fire, The Guardian, 14 April.

Politics goes net around the world, Australian IT, 24 April.

Politicians lost in cyberspace, Globe and Mail, 19 April. This Reuters story also appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald, Brisbane Times, The Age, The West Australian, Mail and Guardian, Washington Post and several others.

Wolfowitz pledges 'major changes' at World Bank, Earth Times, 24 April.

Wolfowitz-Affäre: Weltbank wollte Klimawandel totschweigen, Der Spiegel, 25 April.

We were covered in a story by major German newswire Deutsche Presse Agentur (can't find the link right now) and as a result are picked up in other German papers today, including Westfälische Nachrichten.

If we've missed some (except blogs, we can't note all of them - sorry) then please let us know. contact@worldbankpresident.org
