AP’s Climate Extremism Reports Followed $8M Grant From Climate Activists

  • Following a grant of more than $8 million to the Associated Press from key climate change advocates, the news service produced at least 64 stories warning of environmental calamity, according to a new media study.
  • Media Research Center Business found that AP also used over 500 environmental extremism buzzwords in the stories.
  • AP received grants totaling $8 million from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Quadrivium, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Walton Family Foundation in February 2022.
  • It claimed it would not bow to the politics of those groups, and it didn’t have to because it appears the news service was already on the climate activist side.
