CFVI stock rose on December 14, 2021, after the SPAC Rumble merger news broke that Rumble severed ties with Democrat-leaning groups that censored Dan Bongino. Investors seemed to like Rumble’s action because it meant that Rumble wasn’t changing its core niche because of going public via a SPAC.

Rumble Severs Business Ties with Unruly Group and Tremor International (TRMR)

On December 14, 2021, Rumble announced the termination of its relationship with the Unruly Group and Tremor International after they attempted to censor Dan Bongino, the host of a nationally syndicated radio show and a Fox News television program. This decision reaffirms Rumble’s commitment to a free and open internet by hosting a variety of viewpoints on topics of public interest.

“Tremor’s attempt to censor Dan Bongino violated Rumble’s core principles,” said Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski. “Shadowy activists may not like what Dan Bongino has to say, but Rumble will always encourage open debate without taking sides. That is why Rumble decided to terminate its contract with Tremor. We won’t tolerate politicized attempts to cancel creators.”

Citing vague complaints from unnamed “partners,” Tremor attempted to censor Bongino by removing advertisements from his websites and Rumble’s hosted video player. The company provided no proof or examples of the allegedly “fake covid information” that was the source of the complaints, instead expecting Rumble to bow to the demands of a few anonymous censors. Tremor wanted ads removed from Bongino’s pages even though YouTube and many other sites monetize Bongino’s content.

Rumble gave Tremor the opportunity to provide examples of violations of Rumble’s content policies, but the group failed to do so. Accordingly, Rumble terminated its relationship with the company.

Rumble is a high-growth neutral video distribution platform that is creating the rails and independent infrastructure designed to be immune to cancel culture. Rumble’s mission is to restore the internet to its roots by making it free and open once again. The company recently announced the execution of a definitive business combination agreement with CF Acquisition Corp. VI (NASDAQ: CFVI).

Rumble announces Michael Ellis as General Counsel

On December 8, 2021, Rumble announced that it has hired Michael Ellis as General Counsel and Corporate Secretary. Ellis formerly served in senior legal and policy roles in the Intelligence Community, White House, and Congress. Rumble is already one of the most respected independent and privately-owned companies in the online video-sharing platform industry, and Ellis will provide top-notch counsel as the company continues to expand.

“Michael is a battle-tested lawyer who understands the inner workings of government at the highest levels,” said Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski. “His experience at the intersection of technology and law, combined with his maturity of judgment, will serve Rumble well on a wide variety of legal, compliance, and government affairs matters.”

During the Trump Administration, Ellis served as Senior Director for Intelligence Programs at the National Security Council and as Senior Associate Counsel to the President and Deputy NSC Legal Advisor in the Office of the White House Counsel. Prior to his service in the Executive Branch, Ellis was General Counsel of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence under the leadership of Chairman Devin Nunes.
