Columbia Journalism Review: The Metric Media network runs more than 1,200 local news sites. Here are some of the non-profits funding them.. “The Tow Center has previously reported on Metric Media, but until now, little was known about the finances or partners of this network that claims to give ‘every citizen a voice in their community’ and publishes ‘over 5 million news articles every month.’ A new investigation by the Tow Center has discovered that this network has ties to founders of the Tea Party movement, to a non-profit described by Mother Jones as ‘the dark-money ATM of the conservative movement,’ and to a Catholic political advocacy group that launched a $9.7 million campaign in swing states against the Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden six weeks before the 2020 election.”
