Recently, it was revealed that The Block, a crypto media site was secretly funded over the last two years by Sam Bankman-Fried’s Alameda Research.

Puck's Teddy Schleifer tweeted a list of media outlets that SBF had funded on November 12.

He listed that grants have gone to — ProPublica — Vox — The Intercept — Semafor — The Law and Justice Journalism Project — A podcast

Elon Musk also shared a screenshot and wrote that Semafor is owned by SBF.

Elon Musk responded to Teddy saying if SBF was as good at running a crypto exchange as he was at bribing media, FTX would still be solvent.

Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance also reacted to this with a laughing emoji.

On November 11, FTX and its affiliates filed for bankruptcy after SBF resigned from his CEO position.
