Media Still Fawning Over FTX Fraudsters Caroline Ellison and Sam Bankman-Fried

The Washington Post published an absurd story about Caroline Ellison, the admitted crypto fraudster who is helping federal prosecutors build a case against her former lover Sam Bankman-Fried, the disgraced FTX founder who remains an alleged crypto fraudster. (SBF pleaded not guilty to multiple felonies on Tuesday.)

What did it say?

The headline reads: “Caroline Ellison wanted to make a difference. Now she’s facing prison.” The story highlights the criminal’s élite pedigree and preternatural intellect.

Ellison was raised by “accomplished academics” and educated at a “prestigious” university (Stanford). She was a gifted child who read “a thick Harry Potter book when she was just 5” and grew up to espouse “the importance of giving money away to make the world a better place.”
