The Biden administration is set to spend almost two million of taxpayer dollars on a media education program to train educators, media professionals, librarians, government employees, and information specialists in foreign countries on how to combat “disinformation,” according to grant documents seen by the Washington Examiner.

The $1.9 million grant is part of the American Spaces Digital Literacy and Training Program, which is under the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the State Department. The purpose of the office is to “embed diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in all aspects of its work,” as well as “increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries.”
