On this edition of Independent Sources, we talk about the questions surrounding all the international aid pledged to Haiti. Will these billions of dollars actually make it to the people who need it on the earthquake-damaged island. We examine the controversy stirring in the run up to the 2010 World Cup. Why is so much money being spent on building stadiums and not on other essential infrastructure like hospitals. Then, we profile a blogger at the UN fighting for credentials and credibility.
