ANALYSIS – PART TWO OF THREE – CONTINUED – In part one “Conspiracy Theories or Valid Questions About Trump Shooting?” I discussed several claims that had been made, and later confirmed or contradicted by law enforcement or the media and asked whether Tucker Carlson may be right to ask if Trump's would-be assassin was a lone gunman or had help.

Here we look at some of the more detailed questions and claims from someone who believes didn't act alone.

First, this observer on Substack.

A new report details how the Gates Foundation has subsidized the world's top media outlets for years.

Journalist Alan Macleod convincingly argues that those donations account for ' fawning media coverage, at least until his recent divorce and comments about Jeffrey Epstein.

As Macleod explains:

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.

Bankrolling the World's Most Important Outlets

Recipients of this cash include many of America's most important news outlets, including CNNNBC, NPRPBS and The Atlantic. Gates also sponsors a myriad of influential foreign organizations, including the BBCThe GuardianThe Financial Times and The Daily Telegraph in the United Kingdom; prominent European newspapers such as Le Monde (France), Der Spiegel (Germany) and El País (Spain); as well as big global broadcasters like Al-Jazeera.

All have salivated over Gates at one point or another. The Guardian went so far as to call the software developer “Saint Bill” in one of its articles.

Together, these donations total $166,216,526. The money is generally directed towards issues close to the Gateses' hearts. For example, the $3.6 million CNN grant went towards “report[ing] on gender equality with a particular focus on least developed countries, producing journalism on the everyday inequalities endured by women and girls across the world,” while the Texas Tribune received millions to “to increase public awareness and engagement of education reform issues in Texas.” Given that Bill is one of the charter schools' most fervent supporters, a cynic might interpret this as planting pro-corporate charter school propaganda into the media, disguised as objective news reporting.

The Gates Foundation also gave to entertainment companies like CBS and MTV to change storylines and insert PSAs in popular shows like “ER” and “Law & Order.”
