Syndicate to spread "free" op-eds subjects in corporate media to influence what people think. But 'he who pays the piper calls the tune' - in this case mostly George Soros and Bill Gates.

Project Syndicate is a commercially-controlled media outlet with very close ties to the Deep State. The project was set up by George Soros.[citation needed] The group features comment by literally hundreds of Bilderbergers[citation needed]. A large number of its articles and comments are echoed by downstream corporate media. The desired narratives are picked up and disseminated, often indirectly, and the reader or viewer does not even find out whose opinion they are being presented with as “news”.

Own words

The group "produces and delivers original, high-quality commentaries to a global audience. Featuring exclusive contributions by prominent political leaders, policymakers, scholars, business leaders, and civic activists from around the world, we provide news media and their readers cutting-edge analysis and insight, regardless of ability to pay. Our membership includes over 500 media outlets – more than half of which receive our commentaries for free or at subsidized rates – in 156 countries."[1]

Sponsors

Project Syndicate has received support from the Open Society Foundations, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the MasterCard Foundation, the European Climate Foundation, the European Journalism Centre, the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation (dictator of Dubai), the Heinrich Böll Stiftung, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, GAM, the Google Digital News Initiative, McKinsey Global Institute, the Nature Conservancy (corporate front), and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network.

People

For Project Syndicate, "democracy" means that people get to choose from candidates accepted by the PS sponsors[2]

The "members" in the metadata (top left on page) refers to the Board and some staff members per 2021[4] and the Board for 2008.[5] Most of them have some sort of client relationship with George Soros.

Project Syndicate has around 80 authors who submit opinion commentaries on a regular or monthly basis.[6] Although some of its authors (Bill Gates, Melinda Gates, George Soros, Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum) are also among its foundation funders, Project Syndicate doesn't routinely display any kind of disclosure notice associated with its articles.[7] Bios for authors are frequently PR blurbs emphasizing positive associations while not revealing potential conflicts of interest, such as the following bio for Tony Blair:

"Tony Blair was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1997 to 2007. Since leaving office, he has founded the Africa Governance Initiative, the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, and the Faith and Globalization Initiative."[8]

EventDescription
Bill & Melinda Gates FoundationVery influential and rich foundation established to take leadership of global health.
Google News Initiative
Open Society FoundationsA NGO operating in more countries than McDonald's. It has the tendency to support politicians (at times through astroturfing) and activists that get branded as "extreme left" as its founder is billionaire and bane of the pound George Soros. This polarizing perspective causes the abnormal influence of the OSF to go somewhat unanswered.
