The founder of disgraced cryptocurrency exchange FTX has just confirmed on Twitter that he will still speak at the New York Times’s Deal Book summit on November 30th.
Many FTX users who had their crypto assets taken from them overnight, thought SBF would be in handcuffs by now but instead, he is being offered a keynote speaker spot by the New York Times.
Other speakers alongside SBF are Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, Democrat Mayor of NYC Eric Adams, Mark Zuckerberg, Mike Pence, and more.
Previously, the New York Times wrote a 2,200 worded puff piece about SBF which mentioned fraud or Democrats zero times.

Just after SBF tweeted his confirmation he would be attending the New York Times event the liberal news outlet would write another article about SBF titled “Inside Sam Bankman-Fried’s Quest to Win Friends and Influence People”.
Which was an even bigger puff piece than they wrote about him initially.
An in-depth article by three authors on SBF’s donations that doesn’t even mention the fact that
…it wasn’t his money.

First, the NYT posts a puff piece that makes it seem like the FTX collapse was out of SBF's control.
Now they invite SBF to be a speaker at a BUSINESS summit.
The New York Times is a joke.

SBF had several media outlets in his pocket and reportedly sent large donations to Vox, ProPublica, The Intercept, Semafor, and the Law and Justice Journalism Project.
CEO of Twitter Elon Musk has even chimed in about SBF’s ability to “bribe” media outlets and stated, “If SBF was as good at running a crypto exchange as he was at bribing media, FTX would still be solvent!”
If SBF was as good at running a crypto exchange as he was at bribing media, FTX would still be solvent!
