PayPal Freezes Funds for Consortium News, An Outlet Critical of U.S. Policy on Ukraine

HeadlineMay 04, 2022

PayPal has canceled the account and frozen the funds of the independent news outlet Consortium News, which has criticized U.S. policy on Ukraine. The site’s editor-in-chief, Joe Lauria, said, “Given the current political climate it is more than conceivable that PayPal is reacting to Consortium News’ coverage of the war in Ukraine, which is not in line with the dominant narrative that is being increasingly enforced.” Paypal also recently froze the account of another site, MintPress News.
