Fox News whistleblowers recently revealed the company’s support for shocking “charity” organizations, such as the Satanic Temple, Planned Parenthood, and other left-leaning organizations, that appear to go against Fox’s own conservative audience.
According to Blaze Media, a former Fox producer and two current Fox News employees shared that the company will match charitable donations to organizations that speak against the company’s viewers, pointing to a “complete disregard and hatred” for Fox’s conservative audience.
The company’s “Fox Giving” app reportedly will match up to $1,000 for employee donations through a Canadian-based management service called Benevity.
A current Fox employee gave Rikki Ratliff-Fellman, programming director for Blaze Media, a video tour of the company’s app, showing multiple examples of Fox’s donation matching to left-leaning organizations that the company considers “charity.”
Ratliff-Fellman said, “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 the donation match option for myself to verify nothing was photoshopped.”
The Fox employees showed Blaze Media how employees can give donations to organizations such as Planned Parenthood, which promotes abortion and transgender care, and the Trevor project, which promotes the LGBTQ+ agenda.
The employees showed Blaze Media that the Fox Giving app even provides a 100% donation match for up to $1,000 toward the Satanic Temple.
Blaze Media reported that while Fox will provide a 100% donation match toward the Satanic Temple, the company claims it will not provide a donation match to “donations made to organizations that are private and non-operating, or political, religious, or fraternal in nature.”
“It shows complete disregard and hatred for Fox’s core audience, which is a huge part of the country,” a former Fox producer said. “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.”
A current Fox employee told Blaze Media that Fox’s willingness to match donations to organizations such as the Satanic Temple, Planned Parenthood, and the Trevor Project, “Goes to show there’s definitely a mismatch in values.”
The employee added, “Our business model has turned into ‘just tell the audience what they want to hear.’ 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.”
