Report: Biden’s State Department indoctrinating public school teachers to trust only LEFT-WING MEDIA
By Ava Grace // Jan 19, 2024

A report has revealed that the Department of State, in cooperation with entities from Germany, is indoctrinating public school teachers to trust only left-wing media by means of "anti-disinformation efforts" in the classroom.

The Media Research Center (MRC) led by L. Brent Bozell exposed this scheme through documents it obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request. According to the documents, the State Department paid for trainings that used materials created mostly by German "disinformation activists" for hundreds of teachers.

The 11 "Medialogues on Propaganda" seminars, which happened between June 2021 and April 2022, were attended by some 700 teachers. The seminars were funded by a grant from the U.S. Embassy in Berlin and conducted by the University of Rhode Island’s (URI) Media Education Lab. The training utilized a curriculum developed by the University of Wuerzburg that sought to "inoculate" teachers and students against conservative ideas.

The seminars promoted the Data Detox Kit (DDK) curriculum for spotting "misinformation" – which identifies views like "anti-vaccination" and "climate change denialism" as "conspiracy theories." The DDK also discourages the use of the term "fake news" and encourages students to use notorious left-wing "fact-checking" outlets Snopes and PolitiFact. According to the MRC, the two outlets "are themselves infamous purveyors of misinformation."

The "Glass Room" curriculum, which touches on the "problem of scaling freedom of expression," was also promoted. It frames freedom of expression as a problem: that individuals leave Facebook and YouTube for social platforms where content is less regulated. Moreover, it laments that permitting "content to flow freely and far [makes a] path for misinformation."

Even more damning was the fact that the Glass Room curriculum perpetuates actual misinformation. It denies the lab leak theory of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), and promotes the now-debunked claim that former President Donald Trump colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 presidential election. (Related: DOUBLE STANDARD: MSM misinformation stays up on YouTube indefinitely while truth media is labeled “disinformation” and gets censored, even when true.)

Both the DDK and the Glass Room curriculum were developed by Tactical Tech, a German non-government organization (NGO) that receives funding from the European Union and Sweden. The NGO is also connected to numerous groups funded by far-left donor George Soros.

The virtual sessions broadcast from Germany taught American educators a distinctly European conception of "media literacy." It included the promotion of "media bias" rating company Ad Fontes Media and the NewsGuard platform. The MRC previously pointed out Ad Fontes Media's strong bias in favor of left-wing media, while LifeSiteNews previously caught NewsGuard attaching false and biased "fact checks" to valid stories.

An in-depth investigation into Ad Fontes Media, a "media literacy" organization established in 2018, found that the for-profit company is making money by actively encouraging Big Tech platforms, advertisers and educators to de-platform, boycott and exclude conservative commentators and media organizations.

The company's website also mentions how it is continuously updating its "Media Bias Chart" that includes more than 3,000 media sources graded on Ad Fontes Media's own "bias" and "reliability" metrics. It insists on the chart's objectivity as its evaluations stem from the consensus of anonymous, politically diverse analysts.

"Masquerading as a 'media literacy' organization, Ad Fontes Media is the left's newest weapons to erase conservative speech while bolstering legacy media," the MRC pointed out.

But LifeSiteNews noted that the most alarming session in the training course was the one hosted by Maria Ranieri, the vice president of the Italian Association of Media Education on behalf of the Media Education for Equity and Tolerance (MEET).

Titled "MEET Tolerance," the session promoted curricula aimed at turning children into activists for "intercultural values and social justice through [their] own media productions and practices." It used material developed by Konstantin von Notz, a member of the Bundestag (the German parliament) under the Green Party.

According to the MRC, von Notz has reportedly advocated for an international censorship law against so-called "hate speech." The politician has also been known to use children in his social media campaigns.

"Through the [URI Media Research Lab], the State Department trained American educators on German socialist strategies for bringing indoctrination into the classroom – 'inoculating' students against conservative ideas; turning students into leftist political activists; and putting the Ad Fontes and NewsGuard censorship tools into classrooms," the MRC concluded.
