President Trump calls the mainstream media “the enemy of the people” for a good reason.
You can’t go through a commercial break without a pharmaceutical or propaganda ad!
The MSM news is even worse, with their ‘journalism’ coming from a clear Leftist angle.
While we all wondered who truly funded the propaganda, we need not wonder any longer.
New receipts from Mint Press News reveal Bill Gates gave hundreds of millions of dollars to select media outlets.
These funds are coming from a guy who excitedly talks of taking GMOs and shooting them “right into kids’ veins.”
Knowing what we know about Bill Gates, the narrative he is trying to shape is likely favoring his favorite self-interest, depopulation.
In total, Gates gave $319.4 million to shape the narrative close to his and Melinda’s heart.
Sifting through over 30,000 grants in the company’s database, MintPress can reveal that the Gates Foundation has bankrolled hundreds of media outlets and ventures, to the tune of at least $319 million.

Up until his divorce, journalists, for the most part, left Bill Gates alone, assuming he was just a philanthropic computer nerd.
Alan Macleod from Mint Press News obtained the documents proving otherwise.
After reviewing the 30,000 grants from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s website database, Macleod found donations to media outlets worldwide.
NPR topped the list at $24.6 million, followed by $12.9 million to the U.K.’s Guardian.
Seattle-based Cascade Public Media, which owns KCTS-TV, followed at $10.8 million.
Other outlets receiving direct grants from Gates include Univision, The Conversation, Education Week, Der Spiegel (Germany), NBCUniversal Media, BBC, and Al-Jazeera.
Allegedly, the money was directed towards “issues close to the Gates’ hearts.”
A grant to CNN for $3.6 million went towards gender equality.
To increase public awareness of education reform issues in Texas, the Texas Tribune received millions of dollars.

The Gates Foundation also gave over $60 million to charities aligned with prominent media outlets.
Examples include over $50 million to BBC Action and over $9 million to MTV’s Staying Alive Foundation.
To better shape the media to align with Gates’ preferred narrative, he also allegedly underwrites a network of investigative journalism centers.
These donations come in over $38 million, half going to the D.C. International Center for Journalists.
Gates’ doesn’t stop there.
He’s also funded grants to train journalists globally.

In addition to this, the Gates Foundation also plies press and journalism associations with cash, to the tune of at least $12 million. For example, the National Newspaper Publishers Association — a group representing more than 200 outlets — has received $3.2 million.
The list of these organizations includes:
Education Writers Association – $5,938,475
National Newspaper Publishers Association – $3,249,176
National Press Foundation- $1,916,172
Washington News Council- $698,200
American Society of News Editors Foundation – $250,000
Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press- $25,000
This brings our running total up to $216.4 million.
The foundation also puts up the money to directly train journalists all over the world, in the form of scholarships, courses and workshops. Today, it is possible for an individual to train as a reporter thanks to a Gates Foundation grant, find work at a Gates-funded outlet, and to belong to a press association funded by Gates. This is especially true of journalists working in the fields of health, education and global development, the ones Gates himself is most active in and where scrutiny of the billionaire’s actions and motives are most necessary.
Gates Foundation grants pertaining to the instruction of journalists include:
Johns Hopkins University – $1,866,408
Teachers College, Columbia University- $1,462,500
University of California Berkeley- $767,800
Tsinghua University (China) – $450,000
Seattle University – $414,524

Rhodes University (South Africa) – $189,000
Montclair State University- $160,538
Pan-Atlantic University Foundation – $130,718
World Health Organization – $38,403

The BMGF also pays for a wide range of specific media campaigns around the world. For example, since 2014 it has donated $5.7 million to the Population Foundation of India in order to create dramas that promote sexual and reproductive health, with the intent to increase family planning methods in South Asia. Meanwhile, it alloted over $3.5 million to a Senegalese organization to develop radio shows and online content that would feature health information. Supporters consider this to be helping critically underfunded media, while opponents might consider it a case of a billionaire using his money to plant his ideas and opinions into the press.

We aren’t surprised that Gates is using his billions to fund his own agenda.
Social media agrees, seemingly unsurprised by the news that one of the elites controls the media.

The total of Gates’ donations to shape the media come in at $319.4 million, although the number is likely much higher.
Gates’ global sub-grants were not counted in the lists above.
One example highlighted includes the Gates Foundation partnership with ViacomCBS.
ViacomCBS controls CBS News, MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon, and BET.
The Blaze has more:
Macleod noted that the list does not take into account sub-grants, which are monies given by recipients to media across the globe.
“While the Gates Foundation fosters an air of openness about itself, there is actually precious little public information about what happens to the money from each grant, save for a short, one- or two-sentence description written by the foundation itself on the website,” he continued. “Only donations to press organizations themselves or projects that could be identified from the information on the Gates Foundation’s website as media campaigns were counted, meaning that thousands of grants having some media element do not appear in this list.”
Macleod pointed out that the foundation’s partnership with media empire ViacomCBS is the perfect illustration.
ViacomCBS, which controls programming for CBS News, Nickelodeon, BET, and more, was reportedly a Gates Foundation beneficiary in exchange for “[inserting] information and PSAs into its programming and that Gates had intervened to change storylines in popular shows like ER and Law & Order SVU.”
“However, when checking BMGF’s grants database, ‘Viacom’ and ‘CBS’ are nowhere to be found, the likely grant in question (totaling over $6 million) merely describing the project as a ‘public engagement campaign aimed at improving high school graduation rates and postsecondary completion rates specifically aimed at parents and students,’ meaning that it was not counted in the official total,” Macleod explained.
Billionaires have no place controlling the public narrative for their gain.
With this revelation, do we even have free press anymore?
By definition, you can not have a free press that's bought and paid for by billionaires.

It’s time everyone stops viewing Bill Gates as a genuinely altruistic philanthropist.
While Gates may think he owns the world, once the world awakens to Gates’ dark side, he won’t be able to walk down the street.
It’s already started in London.
