Funding Hate is a 4-part series on the Ford Foundation's funding of Palestinian groups that engage in anti-Israel activity. The series was the result of a two-month investigation, involving interviews with dozens of individuals in seven countries, as well as a review of more than 9,000 pages of government and organizational documents. The series broke in October 2003 and immediately caused a national reaction in Congress, among Jewish organizations, and in the government. At first, the Ford Foundation tried to deny the findings of the series. But after vocal calls for investigations were issued by members of the House and Senate, as well as the State Department, Internal Revenue Service and Department of Justice, Ford admitted the substance of the series and promised to implement new policies and undo years of funding hate. The New York Sun ran the series in full.
