Insiders have disclosed that Fox News’ corporate donations program matches employee payments to some of the nation’s most leftist and anti-Christian organizations, continuing the company’s gradual drip of embarrassing revelations.
The network’s “Fox Giving” gateway allows workers to see the contributions they make matched to extreme left groups like Planned Parenthood as well as the Satanic Temple, according to The Blaze, which spoke with two active Fox employees and one previous employee. All spoke anonymously in order to discuss a development that will serve as yet another major blow to the network which has struggled after firing it’s top star, Tucker Carlson.
The staff members demonstrated to The Blaze how to donate to organizations that have at different times come under fire from the historically center-right network for backing Democratic politicians and anti-religious campaigns by using the “Myfox.okta.com” link. The Southern Poverty Law Center, which ironically criticized the media company for making money off its “extremist” ex-primetime show Tucker Carlson, is one of Fox’s prospective winners. The Fox network will match staff contributions to a maximum of $1,000.
One active worker summed up the network’s contribution program’s duplicity.
“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 the Satanic Temple are a huge slap in the face to every Christian at the company, and we resent it,” the statement continued, adding, “It offends me personally that this company acts like they support Christians and yet they’re literally willing to match $1,000 donation to the Satanic Temple.”
According to its policy, Fox won’t match donations given to “organizations that are private and non-operating, or political, religious, or fraternal in nature,” nor will it match gifts given on the basis of “age, disability, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity characteristics or expression, marital status,… pregnancy, or medical condition.”
A former Fox producer claimed that by funding such a program, his firm is neglecting its conservative audience’s trust.
“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 disdain] is driven more by executives, lawyers, and HR than people realize, especially post-Dominion,” the former producer claimed, making reference to the business’ $787.5 million agreement with Dominion Voting Services earlier this calendar year.
Fox has struggled to escape the sights of conservatives who have criticized the media outlet for going “woke” with pro-transgender policies within and looking for candidates other than front-runner, former President Trump, like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as its ratings have fallen since its separation with Tucker Carlson. If Carlson is successful in raising the necessary capital to start his own business, he might challenge his previous network throughout the crucial 2024 presidential election cycle. Allies have started leaking more negative information as his contract (which does not allow him to work for a competitor) has stretched on in an effort to discredit Fox.
Carlson has established himself as a more strident conservative advocate on Twitter than he was on his Fox prime-time program.
The former anchor of a well-liked Fox News program, Carlson, has landed a sizable advertising contract for his most recent endeavor, a show that runs on Twitter.
Sources with knowledge of the situation told CNBC that Carlson had signed an enormous advertising contract with Public Square, a shopping app which bills its site as a forum for conservative people to question “environmental, social, and governance policies.”
Although Carlson’s officials have not yet commented on the agreement, this move signals that Carlson wants to draw in advertisers that share his views and are looking for an expanded audience for their conservative communications.
He recently came under fire for hosting Andrew Tate, a social media figure who was charged with human trafficking by Romanian authorities.
According to reports, Fox News wrote Carlson a letter requesting that he halt operations as his Twitter following increased after leaving the network.
As reported by Axios, Carlson is still bound by the terms of his deal with Fox, which state that the business will have exclusive access to his content through December 31, 2024.
In response to the letter, Carlson’s team released a statement reiterating his determination to remain unafraid.
Public Square, Carlson’s show’s commercial partner, seems to share his conservative viewpoints.
According to CNBC, Public Square CEO Michael Seifert has stated the company’s objective to combat environmental, social, and governance (aka ESG) measures that have come under fire from conservative media hosts, right-wing leaders, and Republican legislators.
In opposition to what he sees as corrupt ideologies harmful to the economy, Seifert has underlined the necessity for a substitute economic environment.
Carlson’s program is anticipated to begin featuring advertising for Public Square towards the end of August.
