The media is making Elon’s point
Elon Musk suspended the accounts of several mainstream media journalists.
Over the past few weeks since Musk had Bari Weiss, Matt Taibbi and other journalists formerly of the ilk of the ones he suspended handle the archives of the erstwhile proprietors of Twitter, the mainstream media has generally yawned at the revelations.
Twitter buried the truth, outright lied, used subterfuge, twisted language and pretext to ban whom the management and employees pleased. They did this generally with the help and smiling approval of parts of the U.S. government and the mainstream media. The same media that elected Weiss and Taibbi as being too--umm--libertarian for their political tastes.
Weiss asked Musk if he is simply replacing the prior management’s caprice with his own. He laughed and said he is open to suggestions.
Musk had to get the attention of the people who were yawning. The ones who protested LibsofTikTok but not the doxxing of the not-a-celebrity account owner.
He did. Now they’re protesting him.
It might be the bluntest possible hammer to use but it was the only hammer Elon believed he had. And the same media that cheered others who they dislike being memory-holed are squealing like stuck pigs over their own friends having the same treatment.
They are making Elon’s point for him.
I’ll bet $100 they don’t get the point.
