It is now confirmed that the Gates Foundation has bankrolled hundreds of media outlets and ventures, to the tune of at least $319 million.

Up until his recent messy divorce, Bill Gates enjoyed something of a free pass in corporate media.

While other billionaires’ media empires are relatively well known, the extent to which Gates’s cash underwrites the modern media landscape is not.

After sorting through over 30,000 individual grants, MintPress can reveal that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) has made over $300 million worth of donations to fund media projects.
