Billionaire Linked To Portal That Censors Americans

( – Independent journalist Lee Fang revealed that he has obtained a report showing that a billionaire Leftist provided funding to establish the government-linked portal that used to flag alleged “misinformation” on social media during the 2020 election.

According to the report, Democracy Fund, a non-profit run by tech billionaire Pierre Omidyar, provided funding to the Center for Internet Security, a non-profit that collaborated with the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) during the 2020 election to stop the spread of disinformation online.

Based on tax records obtained by Lee Fang, the Democracy Fund gave a $130,000 grant to the Center for Internet Security in 2020.

With the help of this funding, the Center for Internet Security developed the Misinformation Reporting Portal (MiRP), which was designed to facilitate interaction between state election officials and representatives from CISA, social media companies, and the Center for Internet Security.

According to the report, during the 2020 election, the MiRP facilitated 209 cases, 61 percent of which “resulted in positive action,” namely that the “misinformation” was either flagged or removed.

The Center for Internet Security report also noted that over half of the cases occurred within the ten days before the 2020 election and on Election Day itself.

Election day cases included claims of “improper” or “nefarious” issues with voting machines and “typical election operations” like the “movement of ballots,” ballot-stuffing, and intentional obstruction of poll watchers.

The Omidyar Network also funded Accountable Tech, the group that was instrumental in the effort to drive advertisers away from Twitter after Elon Musk took over the company. Between October 2022 and March 2023, the Omidyar Network provided four grants to Accountable Tech ranging from as little as $12,825 to over $209,000.

Pierre Omidyar, the founder of eBay, has also provided funding to advocacy groups targeting Facebook over alleged “hate speech” and “misinformation.”

He also contributed $45 million to a fund sponsored by dark money group Sixteen Thirty Fund which supported Joe Biden in 2020.
