The NBC journalist who wrote the piece which initially seemed to prompt Google‘s decision to defund ZeroHedge and to caution The Federalist is Adele-Momoko Fraser, a British journalist with two years of experience.
She quoted a Google spokeswoman who said both ZeroHedge and The Federalist had been stripped of their ability to monetize.
Momoko-Fraser is believed to be around 25. She has worked with NBC in Londonfor six months.
Before that, she worked for British TV networks Channel 4 and Sky, but her journalism experience is brief.
She graduated with a Masters in Journalism from City University in London in 2018 and before that, obtained an undergraduate degree in Politics and International Relations from the University of Bristol.
She attended a private school in Dulwich, south London, where fees are $7,500 a year, and is understood to live in a $3million home in Hampstead, north London, with her mother.
NBC told DailyMail.com on Wednesday that she was asking for the company’s comment and did not ‘collaborate or purposely attempt to get these sites demonetized’ when she emailed them with the report by The Center for Countering Digital Hate.
After Google responded saying it had stripped the sites of their ability to make money, Fraser tweeted the NBC story and celebrated it.
She thanked The Center for Countering Digital Hate for ‘collaborating’ and used the hashtag BlackLivesMatter.
