What We Asked U.S. Century
Last week, ProPublica published a story about U.S. Century Bank, a troubled financial institution in Miami.
Before we published the story, we made numerous attempts to reach U.S. Century officials for comment, including sending them written questions. U.S. Century responded only with a statement, which we quoted from in the story. (After a translation of our story was printed in two parts by El Nuevo Herald, the bank wrote us a letter to the editor.) The bank’s original statement asserted, “Based on the tenor of the questions you have submitted to us, it is clear that you have a very negative agenda.” So we think readers are entitled to see the questions. Here they are.
