who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Early reporting on this scandal. True, Wolfowitz's record at the world bank became a major news story only in the past few weeks. Some journalists however, have reported a great deal of these allegations as early as 2005. Here are the leaders of the media pack on this story:

- Ward Harkavy of the village voice who was the first to write in September 2005 and then again in January 2006 about this story

- Paul Blustein of the Washington Post from January 2006.

- Steve Clemons of the Washington Note, in January 2006.

- Former World Bank staff member; Mohamed Hakki in March 2006 - published by counterpunch.org.

Let's not forget also the early reporting here on worldbankpresident.org about this story, also from 2005.
