Big Media Implodes: The Intercept And Other Media Engulfed By Scandal: FTX Was Giving Millions To Outlets Including The Intercept, ProPublica, VOX. Semafor, Vanity Fair, And More

To Control All Messaging Around COVID-19, “biosafety and pandemic prevention,” to ban certain virologists, and worse.

Daily Mail article here.

This guy Ben Armstrong is doing an old fashioned stakeout, waiting for Sam Bankman Fried to emerge from his luxury condo in the Bahamas. He says he is the one and only person there. No other press.

The $5 million FTX grant to ProPublica was announced online glowingly earlier this year, bold font and exclamation points mine:

“Building a Stronger Future — a family foundation run by Sam Bankman-Fried, founder and CEO of cryptocurrency exchange FTX, and his brother, Gabe Bankman-Fried — announced a $5 million grant to ProPublica on Feb. 28, 2022. Over three years, the donation will support investigations into ongoing questions about the COVID-19 pandemic, biosecurity and public health preparedness.

“The grant will allow ProPublica to establish a world-class reporting team for wide-ranging, international coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic and any future outbreaks. This reporting will center on a larger accountability question: Is the world taking the steps needed to contain this pandemic and prepare for the next global health threat? The investigative newsroom will look holistically at biothreats, including the security of labs around the world doing cutting-edge research, the factors that may lead to the next pandemic, and the state of monitoring systems meant to catch new infectious diseases as they emerge.

“To produce the greatest impact over the next three years, ProPublica will hire a team of experienced investigative journalists, including a gifted leader (!) who will help their colleagues focus on key areas, an editor who will shape the work, three reporters, a data reporter and a news app developer. Job postings will go up in the coming weeks.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to extend our investigative journalism on one of the most critical issues in world history,” said ProPublica President Robin Sparkman. “With this ambitious effort, our goal is to do what we’ve always done at ProPublica: offer readers reporting that spurs change, is not being done elsewhere and holds power accountable.”


(
 No real journalist uses any of these embarrassing cliches. Ever.)

“Sam and I are thrilled to support ProPublica’s vital work,” said Gabe Bankman-Fried. “Ambitious, high-quality reporting is necessary to inform the public, hold institutions accountable, protect lives, and reduce the risk of future catastrophes. ProPublica has provided essential reporting throughout the pandemic on government decision-making, testing failures, laboratory safety, and many other related subjects. We’re so excited that they will be expanding their coverage of one of the most important issues facing humanity.”

I feel queasy. Not shocked.

I was publicly crucified by these people, back in 2006-2008. I was gang stalked, and driven from the profession I loved, at the peak of my powers. I had, they said, caused the very downfall of the profession, had caused Harper’s reputation to “commit suicide.” And now here they are, these periodicals, taking many millions from Bankman Fried, and trying to get people to feel sorry for them that there is now a “significant hole” in the economy. It’s an abomination.

You’d have to be out of your mind to be an editor of a periodical said to be based on “fearless journalism” and take money from something called Building A Stronger Future Foundation.

But it gets worse:

Reported at Forbidden KnowledgeTV.net:

“Sam Bankman-Fried is the fall guy for Jeffrey Epstein. He took over. Everybody in the Sam Bankman-Fried, FTX – it all comes down to when Epstein exited the scenario…the assets ended up in Sam Bankman’s hands and his parents put him there to move it forward…and prior to Epstein [the assets] came from Robert Maxwell…And the regulators are in on this. They look the other way.”

This is the current masthead of The Intercept.

And here is the editor, Roger Hodge’s mea culpa statement. Read the last three lines!

Acting Editor in Chief Roger Hodge, was my editor on this piece at Harper’s.

Act Up hated it.

In fact it was the end of the world in all of American journalism for a while. I am always not in the right mood to tell this whole disgusting story. I will one day.

So I was noticing The Intercept said boo, nothing about the Covid-19 attack on humanity—lockdowns, masks, death shots. This did not surprise me about (the journalistically pulseless) The Intercept but I guess it faintly baffled me about Roger Hodge.

Because I know what Roger knows, about the apparatus/octopus/beast as we worked on a Fauci/DAIDS/AIDS Inc. expose for two years together. He made it more “intense” than even I wanted it to be, if you can believe that. It was in many respects his piece, as well as mine. I mean his imprint as editor was very strong, and it went though countless expansions, edits revisions and fact checks over two long frankly excruciating years but after it came out I was pitched into hell fire and they did that thing with him where they roughed him up but they didn’t mark him for death. I could tell they wanted to keep him.

Roger did not throw me to the wolves at the time and I was grateful for that. Gary Webb is dead because his editors threw him to the wolves— one of journalism’s most shameful chapters.

There’s more.

Greta Thunberg, 600 Others Sue Sweden for Climate Inaction

Greta Thunberg, 600 Others Sue Sweden for Climate Inaction

By Aljazeera

The lawsuit comes as Sweden’s new right-wing government faces mounting criticism over lacklustre climate goals.

More than 600 young people in Sweden, including climate activist Greta Thunberg, have sued the Swedish state, accusing it of climate inaction.

The lawsuit, symbolically submitted to the Stockholm district court during a protest in the city on Friday, had previously been filed electronically to another Stockholm court, according to the organisation behind the lawsuit, Aurora.

“There has never been such a large-scale case in the Swedish legal system”, Ida Edling, a member of Aurora, told the AFP news agency.

The legal action, which has been in the works for two years, comes as Sweden’s new right-wing government faces mounting criticism over lacklustre climate goals.

Moa Widmark, a 19-year-old student, said she was taking part in Friday’s demonstration because “the climate crisis is worrying and scary – we’re headed for a catastrophe.”

Previous lawsuits

While the lawsuit is a first in the Swedish courts, six Portuguese youths have taken Sweden and 32 other countries to the European Court of Human Rights, accusing them of failing to adequately address the climate crisis.

“If we win, there will be a verdict that says the Swedish state is required to do its share of the global measures needed for the world to meet the 1.5-degree target”, Edling said.

In recent years, a growing number of organisations and citizens have turned to the courts to criticise what they claim is government inaction on the climate.

In December 2019, the Dutch supreme court ordered the government to slash greenhouse gases by at least 25 percent by 2020, in a landmark case brought by an environmental group.

In a similar case in France, more than two million citizens took the French state to court for failing to act against climate change.

In a report published earlier this week, the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute said the average temperature in Sweden had risen nearly 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) since the late 1800s, twice as fast as the global average.

Snow cover now lasts two weeks less, while precipitation has increased.

Russian Parliament Passes Law Banning ‘LGBT Propaganda’ Among Adults

Russian Parliament Passes Law Banning ‘LGBT Propaganda’ Among Adults

By Reuters

MOSCOW, Nov 24 (Reuters) – Russia’s parliament approved on Thursday a bill that widens a prohibition of “LGBT propaganda” and restricts the “demonstration” of LGBT behaviour, making any expression of an LGBT lifestyle almost impossible.

Under the new law, which still needs the approval of the upper house of parliament and President Vladimir Putin, any action or information that is considered an attempt to promote homosexuality – whether in public, online, or in films, books or advertising – could incur a heavy fine.

Previously, the law had outlawed only promotion of LGBT lifestyles aimed at children. The new bill also bans the “demonstration” of LGBT behaviour to children.

Lawmakers say they are defending traditional values of the “Russian world” against a liberal West they say is determined to destroy them – an argument also increasingly being used by officials as one of the justifications for Russia’s military campaign in Ukraine.

Authorities have already used the existing law to stop gay pride marches and detain gay rights activists. Rights groups say the new law is intended to drive so-called “non-traditional” LGBT lifestyles practised by lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender people out of public life altogether.

‘HYBRID WARFARE’

“LGBT today is an element of hybrid warfare and in this hybrid warfare we must protect our values, our society and our children,” Alexander Khinstein, one of the bill’s architects, said last month.

Legal experts said the vagueness of the bill’s language gives room for law enforcers to interpret them as broadly as they wish, leaving members of the LGBT community in a state of even greater uncertainty.

Kseniya Mikhailova of the LGBT support group Vykhod (“Coming Out”) said adults-only gay bars or clubs would probably still be allowed to function, although perhaps not to advertise, but that same-sex kissing in public might be taken as an infraction.

And she said same-sex couples would begin to fear that their children might be taken from them on the grounds that they were having an LGBT lifestyle demonstrated to them.

The law stipulates fines of up to 400,000 roubles ($6,600) for individuals and up to 5 million roubles ($82,100) for legal entities. Foreigners could face 15 days of arrest and subsequent expulsion.

Mikhailova said the original ban nine years ago on LGBT “propaganda” towards minors had triggered a wave of attacks on the LGBT community, and that it could now expect a “tsunami” because the amendment in effect “says the state is not against violence towards LGBT people”.

Political scientist Ekaterina Schulmann said the law aimed to prohibit anything that showed LGBT relations or inclinations to be “socially acceptable” or “equal to so-called traditional family relations or sexual relations”.

“People – authors, publishers, just people – will think twice before even mentioning anything related to LGBT,” she said in an interview from Cologne, Germany.

Schulmann said the bill was also a “huge win” for the communications regulator, Roskomnadzor, which had already “assumed the powers of a political police” and now had the authority and responsibility to monitor all kinds of information in search of LGBT propaganda.

The video-sharing app TikTok was fined 3 million roubles last month for promoting “videos with LGBT themes”, while Russia’s media regulator asked publishing houses to look at withdrawing all books containing “LGBT propaganda” from sale.
