After Twitter’s Monday agreement to let Elon Musk purchase the platform, Establishment Media collapsed. Brian Stelter (CNN’s chief media correspondent), claimed Hunter Biden’s laptop was Russian disinformation before it was confirmed by the establishment media. He claimed that free speech was not attractive to Americans.
He rhetorically asked, “If you are invited to something without rules, where there is complete freedom for everyone, are you going to want to go or will you decide to stay home?” Twitter users can answer that question.
He moaned that “some Twitter users would love to think there will be absolutely no moderation or any rules whatsoever.” “Others may not want to be anywhere close.”
Ari Melber, MSNBC anchor, claimed that the coronavirus could not have originated in China. Melber also complained Monday night that Twitter under Elon Musk may “secretly ban one candidate or all its candidates”. Melber ignored Twitter’s censorship of Melber’s “laptop from hell” story.
As we discussed, if you have all the Twitter or Facebook accounts or whatever it is, you don’t need to explain who you are. He said, “You don’t even need to be transparent.” You could secretly ban a candidate of one party, or all its candidates, and all its nominees. You could also secretly reduce the reach of their stuff, increasing the reach for something else. The rest of us may not find out about it until after the election.
Sunny Hostin (co-host of The View) claimed that people are excited because Elon Musk is going to unleash the “trolls” on Tuesday.
Hostin said that Musk’s purchase may lead to a left-wing alternative in which “real people are talking.”
The Washington Post published Monday night a story that detailed the reaction of the left at Twitter’s headquarters to its sale. The headline read: “Twitter workers face reality they’ve always feared: Elon Musk is the owner.”
The article highlighted the fact that Twitter employees experienced so many “shocks” that they were too shocked to talk on the record.
The article stated that some people had tears-filled emojis and memes about emotional breakdowns. Others told The Post that they were too shocked to speak. “Local leaders did not respond to questions regarding future layoffs, safety measures, or whether advertising revenue will be retained.
