Musk, Twitter, and the State of Legacy Media
Amid countless attacks and endless slander, Elon Musk seems to be fighting for transparency and free speech. Let’s pray for media and for those who are working to reform it.
From RedState. We’ve seen how the left and the liberal media haven’t been at all happy with Elon Musk buying Twitter and championing free speech. …
Much of the liberal media either tried to downplay or ignore the revelations of the Twitter Files showing the coordination of the government in the suppression of speech on Twitter. But that hasn’t stopped Musk from commenting, as he did earlier, about the questions that should be pursued regarding Dr. Anthony Fauci.
CNBC’s Squawk Box and Axios business reporter Hope King went after him, saying that with his actions regarding Twitter, his “reputation is in danger.” …
"@elonmusk's reputation is in danger," says @axios Business Reporter @hopeking. "All of the macro conditions are against his favor. Market-share for $TSLA is down year-over-year. His reputation with Twitter is impacting his reputation when it comes to all of his companies." pic.twitter.com/iRBldsD78e

Co-anchor Andrew Sorkin claimed even Musk would say he had made a mistake in buying Twitter, which I don’t think he has said. King said that Musk wasn’t “holding up his end of the bargain” with the Twitter deal.
Musk’s “end of the bargain” was trying to increase free speech on the platform, and he’s done a great job at that, despite all kinds of attacks from Democrats and the media. …
But if the media thought Musk was going to be put off by the attack or stop the transparency, not so much. Musk responded, “The legacy media should worry about its own reputation. We’ve only just begun.”
His point leads to another problem the legacy media has with him: Twitter is, itself, a news source that is now more reliable than the legacy media. It’s their reputation that has suffered in all this and continues to suffer when they do things like this. …
