Biden Administration Sponsored Foreign Journalist to Report on Climate Change

Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.4 | Relevance 4.7

The Biden administration funded foreign overseas journalists who cover climate change, according to internal State Department emails.  A State Department official wrote in an email on March 23, 2021, “Sounds like a great reporting tour idea; basically, the FPC will sponsor multiple foreign reporters to have experiences that educate them on reporting on climate change. Can EGC and SPEC take a look and clear?”  The event was designed to “promote the Administration’s goal of prioritizing the fight against climate change through global efforts to reduce emissions,” according to the State Department.
