Fox News, the purported conservative cable news network, matches employee donations to numerous left-wing charities and activist groups, according to a report from Blaze Media.
While putting on airs of supporting conservative causes, Fox will apparently match employee charitable contributions to the Satanic Temple, the Trevor Project, Planned Parenthood, and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), insider sources told Blaze Media.
The Trevor Project runs anonymous online forums where children can get advice from adults on their gender and sexuality — in September of last year a Brooklyn, New York, mom found out her child was getting advice from adults on where to secretly obtain a chest binder.
The SPLC is a left-wing watchdog organization which targets conservatives and has characterized parental rights groups as extremists and bigots.
Fox employees may contribute through “Fox Giving,” a company app that facilitates charitable donations.
The network allegedly matches donations up to $1,000 of companies that meet their criteria.
Fox’s internal donation policy states that the company will not match or provide donations to organizations that “discriminate on the basis of a personal characteristic or attribute, including, but not limited to, age, disability, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity characteristics or expression, marital status, … pregnancy or medical condition either in its selection of recipients of the organization’s services, funds, or other support; in delivery of services; or in its employment practices.”
“I watched this source physically log in to their company portal at Myfox.okta.com to confirm the giving app and to see some of the questionable charities and donation match option for myself to verify nothing was photoshopped,” said Blaze Media director of programming Rikki Ratliff-Fellman.
The source showed Ratliff-Fellman how donations to the Satanic Temple, the Trevor Project, the SPLC, and Planned Parenthood would all be matched 100 percent by Fox up to $1,000.
“Fox pretends to care about Christians, but some of the stuff they push internally suggests otherwise. Glory holes, trans surgeries for kids, and potential donations to Satan are a huge slap in the face to every Christian at the company, and we resent it,” one current Fox employee said to Blaze Media.
“It offends me personally that this company acts like they support Christians yet they’re literally willing to match $1,000 donation to the Satanic Temple,” the employee added.
Although Fox’s company policy states that they will not match donations to “organizations that are private and non-operating, or political, religious, or fraternal in nature,” the company is apparently willing to match donations to Satanists.
“It became clear certain things weren’t going to be tolerated on air any more after Tucker was gone. We were told: Lay off Dylan Mulvaney,” said a former Fox producer to Blaze Media. “Once I realized we couldn’t say certain things on air any more, I started to dig more into the reality of the corporate views.”
“It shows complete disregard and hatred for Fox’s core audience, which is a huge part of the country. They 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 former producer said.
In June, Daily Wire political commentator Matt Walsh revealed internal documents from Fox News that revealed the company was encouraging employees to donate to left-wing charities and to read sexually explicit LGBT books.
The company was also testing an AI platform called Eskalera which monitored Fox employees’ commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
The AI pulled data from emails and payroll systems, generated a “peer comfort index” and “diversity index,” based in part on employees’ use of “microagressions.”
A second current Fox employee told Blaze Media that they don’t “want to blow up the company” over these revelations, but that they found it “disappointing.”
“Goes to show there’s definitely a mismatch in values. Our business model has turned into ‘just tell the audience what they want to hear’,” the second employee said. “It’s about appeasing and assuaging the audience even though most people in the C-Suite disagree with their audience’s values. It’s manipulative.”
