Since Elon Musk has taken over Twitter (now X), he relaxed its misinformation policies on the platform and has become increasingly critical of Democrats and the Biden administration, federal agencies have begun probing X, Tesla, and SpaceX, raising questions about targeting of the billionaire’s breadth of companies.
Following Musk’s takeover of Twitter last year, his companies have been probed by the Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission as he has been an advocated for free speech on the platform. The probes include the Justice Department’s Immigrant and Employee Rights division investigating a complaint of employment discrimination from a non-U.S. citizen, who alleged that SpaceX discriminated against him based on his citizenship status, according to Reuters.
President Joe Biden was asked by ProPublica in an interview aired Sunday if Musk lowering the guardrails against misinformation on Twitter (now X) contributed to the problem of misinformation.
“Yeah, it does,” Biden said. “Where do people get their news?” he later added. “They go on the internet. They go online … and you have no notion whether it’s true or not.”

Biden’s team will eventually liquidate the Kulaks.
Misinformation is anything unflattering to the CPUSA.
Xiden is working hard at implementing the “China model” in the U.S. Not everyone is onboard though. He’s looking to change that by force if necessary.
The EU’s Digital Servuces Act just came in to force.
Folks should check it out.
It’s another preview of coming attractions we’re busily ignoring.
Well, can’t say we weren’t warned.
Twitter was banning people for telling the truth about Ivermectin’s efficacy against Covid and for saying that the vaccine didn’t work.
Today’s American Left is the most fascist of any government in the first world.
“ and you have no notion whether it’s true or not.”
Wow… this from the man who has probably lied about his past and plagiarized speeches and other people’s works!
Never go full Goebbels.
Always has been. Communism and fascism are two sides of the same coin. Centralized control and a command economy.
Oh, the left will tell you “it’s different” but both Hitler and Mussolini were acolytes of communist and leftist thought but couldn’t make “real communism” work so came up with an “improved socialist model”.
Provably lied… stupid ac!
At least there's a chance that internet news is true. Unlike the nightly news when all their news is simply leftist activism.

The common denominator between modern Communism and modern Fascism is there is always a tier of elites who live a very Capitalistic lifestyle on the labor of the lower class and it will not work in this country because the landmass is too large for complete control of the population.
Ironic that Biden is concerned about falsehoods being promoted. Biden, the guy who routinely makes up stories about his life, even before dementia set in. A plagiarist in college and liar ever since. And of course his criminal activities- certainly not going to be honest about that.
Your government hates you. Hate them back.
In my opinion, if you own Tesla stock, you should probably sell.
Pray tell Der Joe what are 3 examples of “misinformation” on X?
“To those who hate truth, truth looks like hate.”
No surprise the proven liars in the Establishment media hate their loss of control over the narrative.
