On November 17th, the AlabamaFreePress.com Briefing Room shared information about the connections between cryptocurrency firm FTX and Senator-elect Katie Britt. Since that reporting, it appears that only one other state-wide media outlet has reported some of the story.
1819news.com mentioned the $105,000 FTX contribution to the Alabama Conservatives Fund PAC, which supported only Katie Britt with their funds. 1819News.com buried this information about Britt and FTX at the bottom of a story about Senator Tuberville. Since they did not report on the contribution of $5,000 made directly to Britt for Alabama Inc, in June, 2022, they could not ask if Britt intended to return that contribution.
At least 1819News.com made some effort to report on it. Good luck finding any of the info on yellowhammernews.com, al.com, or alreporter.com. In 2023, AlabamaFreePress.com will continue to report information important to Alabamians that the other state-wide media outlets are leaving off of their sites.
