The chaos at Rebel Media intensified today, with one former contributor asking pointed questions about how the hard-right online outlet uses reader contributions and founder Ezra Levant claiming in turn that he’s being “blac kmailed.”

“I’m being blackmailed. I’m being extorted,” wrote Levant on his website in response to a video posted online Thursday by former contributor Caolan Robertson.

Robertson, who says he left Rebel Media two weeks ago, alleged in a lengthy YouTube video that Levant tried to pay him $20,000 to ensure he wouldn’t speak publicly about what the organization does with the money it crowdfunds from supporters.
