Freedom Alliance, Hannity And North's Favorite Charity, Has Been Downgraded By Charity Navigator

Reported by Ellen - April 3, 2010 -

We've been following with great interest the complaints filed against Freedom Alliance, the charity run by convicted liar Oliver North and promoted by Sean Hannity via his pricey Freedom Concerts that fail to tell you how much of your $100 or so ticket price actually goes to the charity. Apparently, the charity watchdog organization Charity Navigator is paying attention, too. Joe Conason in Salon reports that Freedom Alliance has just been abruptly downgraded from a four star rating to two stars.

Conason notes that a four star rating means that Charity Navigator finds it "exceptional," meaning it "exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in its Cause."

A two-star rating means that Freedom Alliance has been found to "need improvement." It "meets or nearly meets industry standards but underperforms most charities in its Cause."
