BUYING THE PRESS: FTX showered left-wing media outlets like Vox, the Intercept and ProPublica with stolen investment cash
By Ethan Huff // Nov 27, 2022

It has come to light that another thing disgraced FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) did with all that stolen investor cash is hand it over to the likes of ProPublica, Vox, The Intercept, and other far-left media outlets.

The Law and Justice Journalism Project, along with the recently launched Semafor media empire, were also on the dole of SBF and his crypto exchange scam, which in case you somehow missed it recently collapsed following the revelation that SBF and other crony executives stole all their investors' money.

"They all took it," said Human Events Daily's Jack Posobiec about the various left-leaning media outlets that took cash from SBF and FTX. "And none of them broke the story." (Related: FTX was also involved in funding the infamous "TOGETHER Trial" discrediting ivermectin as a viable remedy for the Wuhan coronavirus [Covid-19].)

Semafor, which was launched in October, is said to have raised $25 million from investors such as David Bradley of The Atlantic magazine and Jessica Less, founder of the technology website "Information." SBF, of course, also contributed to Semafor's launch.

"That was only a few short weeks before FTX collapsed," reports The Post Millennial.

"Customers made a run on the exchange to withdraw their deposits, only to find that the company did not actually have it. FTX is now in Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings in the state of Delaware, and Semafor is out a whole bunch of money."

Elon Musk says Semafor's reporting on FTX is inaccurate

While most of the aforementioned media outlets have not reported on the SBF and FTX scandal for reasons that are now clear, Semafor did report on it – though with incredible inaccuracy, according to billionaire tech titan Elon Musk.

Semafor reported that SBF had a relationship with Musk, to which Musk responded with the claim that his "bulls**t meter was redlining."

"Semafor is owned by SBF," Musk wrote in a tweet to Semafor. "This is a massive conflict of interest in your reporting. Journalistic integrity is [trash]."

This tweet came after Semafor made the suggestion that readers follow the media empire on some other platform besides Twitter, which many left-wing groups are now boycotting because of Musk's purchase.

When asked why it is urging its followers to use a platform other than Twitter, Semafor snarkily responded with, "No reason in particular, but you can also follow us on:" followed by a list of other globalist-controlled social media and tech platforms.

Interestingly enough, Semafor put out a claim that SBF had, in the past tense, a stake in not only Semafor but also Twitter. When asked by Musk "what's going on here?" concerning these ties, Ben Smith, Semafor's founder, responded with:

"Like you and many others, we took an investment from him."

As for Vox, the company says it received "a grant from Building a Stronger Future, a family foundation run by Sam and Gabe Bankman-Fried, to support a project on technological innovation bottlenecks that hamper human progress," but that the project is "now paused" due to FTX's collapse.

ProPublica reportedly received a $5 million grant from the same "family foundation" on Feb. 28, 2022. That donation was to be used for supporting "investigations into ongoing questions about the COVID-19 pandemic, biosecurity and public health preparedness."

The Building a Stronger Future Foundation, by the way, was a key component of SBF's "effective altruism" scam, which is just Marxist globalism in very thin disguise.

Then we have The Intercept, which had reportedly taken in $500,000 from FTX at the time of its fall. SBF's bankruptcy, said acting editor-in-chief Ryan Hodge, "will leave The Intercept with a significant hole in its budget."
