Fox News, historically known for its conservative stance, is facing accusations of subsidizing leftist activist groups through its “Fox Giving” app.
Fox Giving matches donations made by employees to various charitable organizations, up to $1,000. However, it appears that Fox is also matching donations to groups that hold views antithetical to the conservative values espoused on air.
Among the organizations receiving matching donations are the Satanic Temple, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), Planned Parenthood, and the Trevor Project. The Satanic Temple is an atheistic leftist group known for distributing satanic literature to children and promoting controversial rituals, while the SPLC has been criticized for labeling conservative groups as extremists and bigots.
Planned Parenthood has been involved in abortion services and cross-sex hormone therapy, while the Trevor Project, aimed at preventing suicide among LGBTQ youth, has been accused of promoting gender ideology and woke propaganda.
Despite Fox News having been publicly critical of these organizations and their agendas, insiders claim that these groups were eligible for matching donations from the company. Screenshots provided by one source and corroborating testimonies from others confirm this practice.
One anonymous employee expressed frustration, stating that while Fox portrays itself as supportive of Christianity, matching donations to the Satanic Temple contradict this claim. The employee also criticized the network for seemingly disregarding its core conservative audience while appeasing the woke left.
Fox’s internal donation policy claims not to match donations to organizations that discriminate based on personal characteristics or attributes. If the accusations are true, Fox Giving would inherently contradict this policy.
The revelation has led to speculation that Fox News’ corporate views have shifted in favor of the left in recent months, following the departure of Tucker Carlson and other changes in the network’s programming. Some insiders suggest that executives, lawyers, and human resources are behind these shifts, which they believe show a disregard for the network’s conservative audience.
In response to the accusations, Fox News has not yet provided a public comment. The situation has raised concerns among employees, with some feeling disappointed by the mismatch in values between the company’s leadership and its audience. Others fear potential repercussions from the so-called “ESG police” and are less inclined to pursue the pursuit of truth, instead prioritizing job security.
