Reporter Lynnsey Gardner specifically highlighted White's finding that the damage to the organization was "self-inflicted" by it's board of directors.
"While White found Nardizzi acted "brashly" he found the board's firings of senior management made the crisis worse, saying, "The finances were sound and WWP's impact was strong."Instead White believes the charity was the victim of a "well-thought-out and deliberately planned attack" by former employees.White hammered CBS News and New York Times for their reporting calling it "incorrect" and "unnecessarily damaging journalism.""The board acted inadequately" and "should replace itself," White concluded."
