POGO reports on corporations when there are failures in whistle-blower functions. One of the most worrisome problems we have is corporate capture of the organs of government originally charged to protect the public. Corporations can choose to operate transparently. When they do not, I do not want to patronize those companies. I want to know what they tried to do. I appreciate that POGO tracks and posts it when corporations try to enact improper restrictions on their employees. So many other outlets ignore this. Some even punish their own employees who work to get the messages out. I want to support transparency. It is good for everybody--less stress and tension.
I originally joined the Center for Defense Information two decades ago. I found their reporting to be in-depth and factual and their analyses to be spot on. Since they joined POGO, I've found the entire group maintains the same exceptional level of high quality work.
Holding our corrupt government accountable, this organization is greatly needed & highly important!!!!
POGO is top on my list for representing the people that matter in the USA!! I am well aware of the opposition and the tenacity and patience needed to confront their corruption in so many areas of our Beloved USA. They are one of the last bastions protecting our Constitution! They are on the front lines fighting for us citizens!! We need POGO! Thank you POGO!!!!!!! Judy Batorski
Best bang for my donor buck around. These folks do the serious research and ongoing bird-dogging that it takes to hold government and corporate bad actors accountable. One example is their ongoing coverage of the Savannah River nuclear waste scheme. There are many, many others. POGO is eminently worth supporting if you have some donation dollars that you want to put with a solid organization.
POGO informs me on subjects of great military and economic importance. As a taxpayer, I am often horrified at the misuse of taxpayer funds. The consequences reach far beyond me - global warming, unrest in the Middle East - all these big issues share one ultimate cause: bad government. Whistleblowers seek to inform the public, which is horribly uninformed and misinformed in America, leading directly to more bad government policies and actions.
Excellent, unbiased investigation and advocacy and proven to be trustworthy.
In a nation with little or no oversight over the actions and spending of our government, with no reliable news media and no investigative journalism to speak of, we desperately need organizations like POGO. The Federal Government has devolved to the point that they blatantly ignore the People of the United States in favor of the extremely wealthy, multinational corporations, and neoliberal policies, but POGO at least provides those of us marginalized and abandoned by our government reliable information on what is happening so that we can make judgments based on reality.
This is the only charity that oversees the government and its wasteful spending. Without its presence, things would surely be more wasteful. In particular, it tracks Pentagon spending which is amazingly wasteful and has helped keep the worst practices in check. I have donated to POGO for more than 10 years.
I have been donating to POGO for over 15 years. They seem to be the only organization that acts as oversight and wasteful government spending, especially defense spending.
I like to know the truth but in most reporting these days that is not the case because it has become media enfo-tainment distorting everything where POGO reports the facts without bias. It is informative and detailed...qualities I look for when I'm trying to make an informed decision or opinion. Thanks for the excellent work!
POGO does a lot of good work that the mainstream media misses, has little interest in or distorts.
POGO uncovers and covers very important issues that the news media overlooks. I really appreciate their efforts.
POGO has helped with a lot of different and things and I am happy to be able to voice my opinions on all the different projects they are helping out with. Keep doing what all of you are doing.
For the past few years, I have been reading the literature published by POGO. It has provided information that is not available through the general media and has helped correct much of the misinformation that is available through main line sources, particularly funding for the military. I appreciate the fact that POGO points out how federal funds can be spent most helpfully and where money has and is being wasted. I have used information from POGO to write to my U.S. senators and representative.
Fearless! Delves into controversial subjects others won't consider. I'm often searching for details on subjects only POGO provides. Thank you for your consistency.
I think it is important to know the truth. POGO is an excellent source of information. The people who investigate and write the columns are excellent . Keep up this important work! Everyone should read this web site.
A force for morality and decency, supporting whistleblowers and exposing the astonishing abuses of a goverment that is out of control
POGO, independent and brutally honest, it is the beacon of enlightenment for our democracy. No other public service provides more vital information.
I work as a documentary film producer for political activist causes and war costs accountability of the US military industrial complex. I can say without reserve that POGO is a true American hero.
truly outstanding group. the position of whistleblowers has not been easy in Obama administration. POGO continues to bring issues and unknown issues to the public while protecting those who have brought them to POGO. POGO continues to be the only place where whistleblowers can go to have the issues which concern them brought to the public while they receive the best protection>
