Fox News donated money to the Satanic Temple and other liberal groups, whistleblowers told Blaze Media. The network’s parent company is willing to match donations of up to $1,000 to several left-wing advocacy groups through its “Fox Giving” app.
Rikki Ratliff-Feldman of Blaze Media spoke with two Fox News employees and one former Fox News producer who revealed that the company matches donations to several notoriously liberal advocacy organization, including abortion provider Planned Parenthood, LGBT activist group the Trevor Project and the Southern Poverty Law Center. Fox also matches donations to the Satanic Temple, which is known for its After School Satan Club launched to counter the Good News Club.
Screenshots provided in the Blaze report back up the whistleblowers’ accounts. A close-up screenshot of the company portal’s page offering employees the opportunity to donate to Planned Parenthood describes the company as “a respected leader in educating Americans about reproductive and sexual health.” The portal makes no mention of the company’s role in performing nearly 400,000 abortions in fiscal year 2021-22.
The Southern Poverty Law Center came under fire last month for listing the parental rights group Moms for Liberty on its “hate map” alongside the Ku Klux Klan. The SPLC has developed a reputation for labeling opponents of progressive ideology as “hate groups.”
The former producer who spoke with Blaze Media cited the company’s willingness to match donations to the far-left advocacy groups as evidence of “complete disregard and hatred for Fox’s core audience, which is a huge part of the country.” The producer, who along with the other sources chose to remain anonymous due to fear of reprisal, insisted that viewers “watch believing Fox is speaking for them, when in reality it’s a company participating in certain things that don’t match their audience’s values.”
The Blaze Media report comes about a month after leaked documents shared by Daily Wire social commentator Matt Walsh showed that Fox encourages its employees to donate to the Trevor Project, which is known for pushing trans ideology in schools and hosts “a sexually explicit chat room that connects children as young as 13 years old with LGBT adults.”
