Elon Musk Slams Media
Business Insider ^ | June 18, 2020

Posted on 06/18/2020 10:09:41 PM PDT by Hildy

Tesla CEO Elon Musk criticized the media in a series of Twitter posts he wrote on Wednesday.

"The holier-than-thou hypocrisy of big media companies who lay claim to the truth, but publish only enough to sugarcoat the lie, is why the public no longer respects them," Musk said.

Musk added that he'd start a website that would evaluate "the core truth of any article & track the credibility score over time of each journalist, editor & publication."

Excellent.

Oh there are plenty of conservative sites like Media Research Center who do that already.
But hey, the more the merrier.

None that have the star power of Elon Musk, though. Also doesn’t hurt that Musk is not identified as a Republican and therefore not automatically ignored by drones.

Perhaps the one apolitical corporation contributing to the well-being of humankind.

It’s not the media alone that’s invested in the downfall of America, it’s virtually every major corporation exercising their grotesque form of Marxism.

We hold the keys to these anti-American corporations. And the keys amount to little more than our habits.

Break the habit of patronizing corporate Marxism.

His comments would have a little more heft if he had not dated Amber Heard. As for his new squeeze, what can I say that is printable?

Musk also wrote that he would start a website that would evaluate “the core truth of any article & track the credibility score over time of each journalist, editor & publication.” Musk said he’d consider naming the website “Pravda,” a name shared by the former official newspaper of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.

He was red pilled a few years ago. Was in the closet but is coming out. Glad to see it.

It becoming apparent that Elon Musk is growing tired of the Woke Cancel culture. One might say he’s been Woke about Woke. This is likely a result of his SpaceX experience and his attempts at mass manufacturing of rockets.
He has been exposed to a wide range of men and women who are not just dreamers but, doers. Machinists, welders, engineers, heavy equipment operators, etc...these people are very likely to have influenced his viewpoint.

“Break the habit of patronizing corporate Marxism.”

We got to do more than that. We have to instill fear in the heads of corporations if they go against us.

That’s how the left gets them to toe their line.

It’s sad it’s come down to a contest of who is best at intimidation, but that’s the reality of things.

We need more decent people to do this. Decent billionaires, I guess I mean. Go for it, Elon. The media have become winged monkey slaves.

I have no problem criticizing public figures, but when it concerns attacking or doxxing the otherwise private individuals, I’ll have no part of that process.

I’m about policy, and less so the individual. There’s always another replacement individual, and we really never know what’s contributing to that individual’s BS. Save the charismatic dictator, it’s policy that steers the unwelcome political direction.

That said, I have reasonable expectations concerning certain corporations that are in a unique position to inflict harm on the Country — and are in fact harming the Country. Those corporations include ATT & Comcast — two federally licensed telecom/ISP providers that enjoy the limited availability of such services. Two corporations that regularly condemn conservatives and facilitate racial divisions.

CNN is ATT
MSNBC is Comcast

PING! Elon Musk is growing tired of the Woke Cancel culture. One might say he’s been Woke about Woke. This is likely a result of his SpaceX experience and his attempts at mass manufacturing of rockets.

He has been exposed to a wide range of men and women who are not just dreamers but, doers. Machinists, welders, engineers, heavy equipment operators, etc..

Elon's stand is highly significant. And it proves that we don't need ALL of Hollywood, ALL of Silicon Valley, ALL of the Black leaders, ALL the Gays, etc.

What we need is a few well-respected and courageous people in each walk of life to stand up for America and be counted!

Count Elon Musk as one of the courageous few cultural icons who can turn the tide: James Woods, Candace Owens, Scott Adams, Densel Washington, Jon Voight, Kanye West, the My Pillow Guy... and more.
