FairWarning.org, a California-based nonprofit website that covers safety, health and corporate conduct, closed last week amid concerns about diversity, reports Skye Witley of Current.

Witley reports, “In a joint statement posted Tuesday, the staffers expressed surprise and regret about the demise of FairWarning.

“‘… After telling us it would commission an independent investigation, the Board abruptly dropped that plan in favor of dissolution,’ they wrote. ‘The result is that now, not only have we lost our jobs, but we have lost the opportunity to carry on FairWarning’s important mission of covering public health and safety, labor, and the environment.’

“In a statement to Current Friday, Krupnick said that he had no reason to lie about the situation and never intended or hoped that FairWarning would shut down as a result of his tweets.

“FairWarning’s board said it plans to work with an unnamed nonprofit to archive the organization’s articles digitally.”
