The Most Ridiculous Yet Revealing Media Attack on Elon Musk Has Arrived – Opinion

The media’s attacks against Elon Musk are far out of left field. It is like saying water is wet. It was obvious well before Twitter officially made the announcement late last month that they’d entered into a “definitive agreement” with Musk on buying the social media platform that the MSM and their Democrat allies were going to go Total War and then some on the billionaire investor all for the crime of simply believing in free speech and open debate.

It is Musk’s oft-stated message about just that very thing that prompted the Associated Press to take their best shot this week at trying to prove that Musk is not someone who practices what he preaches. In the latest media hit piece, the AP went after Musk because while he says he wants to buy Twitter on grounds that it could use more speech and less censoring, he’s also using the platform to debate his numerous critics. It is this, the Associated Press proclaims, that makes Musk a walking “contradiction”:

I kid you not. Here’s the article

But if the 50-year-old Musk’s gambit has made anything clear it’s that he thrives on contradiction.

Musk boasts that he’s acquiring Twitter to defend freedom of speech. He has been using Twitter to attack his perceived enemies who are not in agreement with him for years.

LOL “dare” to disagree? Does it actually take someone who is the “daring” type to disagree with Musk? No. Even a casual observer can see just from his Twitter feed alone that Musk thrives on disagreement, like a lot of us in this arena do, but not – fortunately – as a form of shutuppery.

But the bigger issue here with the AP’s swipe at Musk, which discerning readers will note, is that there is no “contradiction” At allAs someone who defends the idea of freedom speech, but also responds to its critics.

It shouldn’t surprise anyone who knows how current media operations operate like the Associated Press that they chose to attack Musk.

You see, to the Associated Presses of the world, a conservative or independent thinker defending themselves publicly from attacks by their critics equates to attempts at “shaming” them into silence. But when it’s a far-left Democrat or other self-styled “progressive” who uses the power of their various platforms to go much further by way of trying to have their critics canceled altogether, well then That constitutes “freedom of speech” in their book.

And while technically they are right in that attempts by leftists to get their right-wing critics ostracized from polite society do technically fall under First Amendment grounds in some cases, it’s rather revealing – and not in a good way – that the AP doesn’t take the same view when it’s the other side (the right) who are taking important yet much less drastic actions in order to counter claims made against them in the court of public opinion.

In essence, they confirmed their liberal bias not to mention their ignorance of what “free speech” actually means, but don’t tell them that it’s they who are being contradictory here. After all, they’re too busy right now updating their stylebook in ways that benefit their woke pals in the Democratic party to notice – or care.
