Sorry to tell you this, but ProPublica is another Left-leaning activist organization. Their biggest financial supporter is George Soros.

They are right in to middle of the Obama IRS scandal:

"In May 2013, the IRS was heavily criticized for admitting to targeting conservative tax exempt groups for added scrutiny. In December 2012 and January 2013, ProPublica published and reported on confidential pending applications for groups requesting tax exempt status. After the scandal broke, ProPublica clarified how it obtained the documents, writing, 'In response to a request for the applications for 67 different nonprofits last November, the Cincinnati office of the IRS sent ProPublica applications or documentation for 31 groups. Nine of those applications had not yet been approved—meaning they were not supposed to be made public.'"
