Red Cross responds to ProPublica/NPR investigative journalism story

The American Red Cross published on its own blog yesterday its response to an investigative journalism article that criticized the Red Cross’ response to recent disaster, including super storm Sandy.

In the blog, the Red Cross denies that it diverted vehicles and resources to press conferences instead of using them to deliver services.

The organization also indicates that there is “no evidence to support” an assertion that After Hurricane Isaac made landfall, the Red Cross sent 80 empty emergency response vehicles through neighborhoods in Mississippi, only for show.
