SEATTLE — Up until his recent messy divorce, Bill Gates enjoyed something of a free pass in corporate media. Generally presented as a kindly nerd who wants to save the world, the Microsoft co-founder was even unironically christened “Saint Bill” by The Guardian.

While other billionaires’ media empires are relatively well known, the extent to which Gates’s cash underwrites the modern media landscape is not. After sorting through over 30,000 individual grants, MintPress can reveal that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) has made over $300 million worth of donations to fund media projects.

The Gates Foundation money going towards media programs has been split up into a number of sections, presented in descending numerical order, and includes a link to the relevant grant on the organization’s website.

Awards Directly to Media Outlets:

Together, these donations total $166,216,526. The money is generally directed towards issues close to the Gateses hearts. For example, the $3.6 million CNN grant went towards “report[ing] on gender equality with a particular focus on least developed countries, producing journalism on the everyday inequalities endured by women and girls across the world,” while the Texas Tribune received millions to “to increase public awareness and engagement of education reform issues in Texas.” Given that Bill is one of the charter schools’ most fervent supporters, a cynic might interpret this as planting pro-corporate charter school propaganda into the media, disguised as objective news reporting.

The Gates Foundation has also given nearly $63 million to charities closely aligned with big media outlets, including nearly $53 million to BBC Media Action, over $9 million to MTV’s Staying Alive Foundation, and $1 million to The New York Times Neediest Causes Fund. While not specifically funding journalism, donations to the philanthropic arm of a media player should still be noted.

Gates continues to underwrite a wide network of investigative journalism centers as well, totaling just over $38 million, more than half of which has gone to the D.C.-based International Center for Journalists to expand and develop African media.

These centers include:

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:

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:

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.

WEF Founder Klaus Schwab Announces ‘Great Narrative’ Project

World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab announced a new globalist initiative called the Great Narrative during a summit in Dubai last week.

“We are here to develop the Great Narrative, a story for the future,” said Schwab on Thursday, joined by United Arab Emirates Minister of Cabinet Affairs Mohammad Abdullah Al-Gergawi.

“In order to shape the future, you have first to imagine the future, you have to design the future, and then you have to execute it.”

“Here, I think the next two days, we will look [to] how we imagine, how we design, how we execute the great narrative, how we define the story of our world for the future,” he added.

Schwab blamed “self-centered” people and the “complexity of the world” for the globalists’ inability to completely control mankind’s future.

“People have become much more self-centered, and to a certain extent, egoistic. In such a situation it is much more difficult to create a compromise because shaping the future, designing the future usually needs a common will of the people,” he told the audience.

“The world has become so complex. Simple solutions to complex problems do not suffice anymore.”

“You have today, not anymore separation between social, political, technological, ecological — it’s all interwoven,” he added.

Describing the WEF’s history, Scwhab also claimed the organization’s “fourth industrial revolution” will “benefit” humanity, referring to his Great Reset initiative to deindustrialize the West in the name of fighting climate change.

Jordan Peterson: Government Adviser Told Me COVID Rules Based on Opinion Polls, Not Science

Jordan Peterson says he spoke to a senior government adviser who told him Canada’s COVID restriction policies are completely driven by opinion polls and not science.

“In relation to the COVID restrictions, I talked to a senior adviser to one of the provincial governments a couple of weeks ago,” said Peterson.

“He told me flat out that the COVID policy here is driven by nothing but opinion polls related to the popularity of the government,” he added.

“No science, no endgame in sight, no real plan, and so what that means is that the part of the population that is most afraid of COVID,” are driving the policy.

Peterson pointed to figures that prove people vastly exaggerate the risk of being hospitalized by COVID due to relentless government fearmongering campaigns.

Bill Gates Praises China’s Covid Lockdowns, Calls For WHO Surveillance Gestapo & More Globalism

During Wednesday’s Bloomberg New Economy Forum, billionaire Bill Gates discussed how the world can get past the Covid-19 pandemic and prepare for the next hypothetical outbreak he keeps warning about.

Beginning his interview with Bloomberg’s John Micklethwait, Gates touched on the global vaccine rollout, complaining that in some “sub-Saharan African countries where the epidemic has not been as visible, demand for the vaccine is challenging to generate,” adding, “but we’ll do the best we can on that.”

Of course, the Gates Foundation head never mentioned how or why African nations with low Covid numbers would need to be vaccinated against the virus.

Regarding the next year of Covid, Gates said, “The death rate and the severe disease rates ought to be coming down dramatically, and by next summer getting to be quite a bit lower than the average seasonal flu level is assuming there’s no surprise variants, which right now is unlikely but can never be ruled out.”

Micklethwait oddly said Covid “is like the flu” during the next question, which is strange considering the grief many people received for making similar comparisons last year.

Next, Gates praised China for stopping Covid early, calling it a “huge blessing” before admitting the low amount of natural immunity in their population will force the communist nation to “drive their vaccination coverage up dramatically before they drop the wall” of strict Covid lockdowns and regulations.
