REVEALED: FTX crypto bro SHOWERED media orgs Vox, ProPublica, Intercept, Semafor and more with investment money

In addition to being a major donor to the Democrat Party during the 2021-22 election season, disgraced FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried was a major donor to several liberal media outlets, including ProPublica, Vox, The Intercept, The Law and Justice Journalism Project, and the recently launched Semafor, leading to speculation about their ability to objectively report on FTX.

“They all took it,” Human Events Daily’s Jack Posobiec noted on Twitter, “and none of them broke the story.”

As Semafor launched in October, Reuters reported that “The platform said it has so far raised $25 million from investors including David Bradley, owner of The Atlantic magazine; Jessica Lessin, founder of technology website Information; and cryptocurrency exchange FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried.”

That was only a few short weeks before FTX collapsed. 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.After Semafor published an article about disgraced FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried’s relationship with Elon Musk, indicating that despite Musk’s claim that his “bullshit meter was redlining,” Musk pointed out that their reporting was perhaps not entirely on the up-and-up where FTX was concerned.

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