The liberal media is going to throw some dirt at Elon Musk, the new owner of Twitter. They will accuse him for threatening people by his freedom speech. Watch out for right-wing mobs.
Wednesday morning The Washington PostDropped this attack
Elon Musk stokes criticism against Twitter executives and prompts online attacks
The targeting of employees by Musk’s massive Twitter megaphone is a major concern for workers.
A trio of reporters wrote this accusation: “Musk’s tweets have singular power to Mob violence against people with much lower profiles — in 280 characters or less.” They located an expert to preach the potential harm in free speech:
Social media experts say a simplistic view of “free speech,” which essentially means few or no rules and restrictions, ignores that such a freewheeling environment could result in violent or harassing attacks that can actually shut down people from participating in the online conversation.
“When that energy is bearing down on you, it’s Terrible. It’s terrifying for you and your friends and family,” said Whitney Phillips, a professor of communications at Syracuse University. “The fact that it is so silencing and creates a chilling effect for others who are worried about speaking out. If you want to talk about dangers and challenges to free speech, that’s central.”
The fear was not assessed by this expert after the Post didxxed creator of “Libs of Tik Tok’ Twitter account.
Jeff Bezos acquired the Post, He didn’t excite conservative critics when he suggested that any newspaper action was “incredibly inappropriate.” The transaction was friendly between liberals. This hostile takeover is not something they are keen to support!
Reason asked Robby Soave about the Post spin.
It’s not true that Elon Musk is ‘targeting’ employees on Twitter. The Washington Post ‘Targeting’ Elon Musk?
If there is a headline, it should probably be: “Elon Musk Agrees With Twitter That Censoring the Hunter Biden Story Was Wrong.”
Soave wanted to know “if criticizing somebody on Twitter is equivalent of harassing them,” The Washington Post Have you not been convicted of the exact same offense? You can take PostSummary of Elizabeth Dwoskin, reporter

Soave said: “This line of reasoning is very strange. Musk didn’t make any racist remarks against Gadde. He echoed a criticism of Twitter policies, for which she was directly responsible. He isn’t responsible for the savage comments she makes.
Moreover, he noted: “Not only is Musk absolutely correct that muzzling the Hunter Biden story was a bad decision: Twitter actually Reckon. It was an error. Former CEO Jack Dorsey has described that action as a ‘total mistake’ and repeatedly apologized for it. It is clear that he regrets trying to hide the truth.”
