The proponents of climate radicalism in government appear to have learned an important lesson: If you want favorable news coverage that supports your ideology, don’t leave it to chance — bankroll it yourself.
Emails obtained by the watchdog organization Protect the Public’s Trust (PPT) suggest that the White House has been sponsoring journalists from other countries to write on topics related to “climate change.”
The emails, which PPT shared with Fox News, show conversations by administration officials regarding a foreign “reporting tour” held last year. The correspondence goes back to March 2021, when top officials at the State Department discussed a plan to use U.S. taxpayer money to allow foreign journalists to “have experiences that educate them on reporting on climate change.”
One notable exchange involved the office of John Kerry, Special Presidential Envoy for Climate (SPEC), and the Office of Global Change (EGC). The officials involved in the exchange said the proposal was “great” and “fantastic.”
