Why are journalists called Presstitutes? Billionaire Bill Gates has secretly funnelled $319 million to select mainstream media outlets around the world as part of an effort to ‘brainwash the public,’ a bombshell new report has revealed.

The diabolical scheme was exposed in documents obtained by investigative journalist Alan Macleod. According to Macleod, the funnelling of cash was exposed during a review of over 30,000 individual grants from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation website database.

Among the beneficiaries on the list are CNN, NBC, NPR, PBS, the AtlanticNew York Public Radio, and other far-left outlets.

‘The Gates Foundation money going toward 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,’ Macleod wrote in his report on the matter.

Gates continues to underwrite a wide network of investigative journalism centres as well, totalling just over $38 million, more than half of which has gone to the D.C.-based International Centre for Journalists to expand and develop African media. 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 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 are most active in and where scrutiny of the billionaire’s actions and motives are most necessary.

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 allotted 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.

Added together, these Gates-sponsored media projects come to a total of $319.4 million. However, there are clear shortcomings with this non-exhaustive list, meaning the true figure is undoubtedly far higher. First, it does not count as sub-grants, the money given by recipients to media around the world.

Also not included are grants aimed at producing articles for academic journals. While these articles are not meant for mass consumption, they regularly form the basis for stories in the mainstream press and help shape narratives around key issues. The Gates Foundation has given far and wide to academic sources, with at least $13.6 million going toward creating content for the prestigious medical journal The Lancet.

And, of course, even money given to universities for purely research projects eventually ends up in academic journals, and ultimately, downstream into mass media.

New York Times columnists had been writing glowingly about the Gates Foundation for years without disclosing that they also work for a group, the Solutions Journalism Network has received over $7 million from the tech billionaire’s charity.

Gates, who amassed his fortune by building a monopoly and zealously guarding his intellectual property, bears significant blame for the failure of the coronavirus vaccine rollout across the world.

In most Press coverage, Gates’s donations are broadly presented as selfless charitable gestures. Yet many have pointed to the inherent flaws with this model, noting that allowing billionaires to decide what they do with their money allows them to set the public agenda, giving them enormous power over society.
