Twitter owner Elon Musk accused the New York Times of being a lobbying firm rather than a serious news organisation after it failed to cover in any depth the revelations that Twitter engaged in mass censorship, particularly with regards to the Hunter Biden laptop fiasco.
Musk revealed that he has increased his personal security in response to concerns over his safety following the release of the first dump of files:
However, when a tweeter pointed out that there wasn’t a single piece on the New York Times’ website covering the release of Twitter files, with analysis by investigative journalist Matt Taibbi, Musk responded “That is because The New York Times has become, for all intents and purposes, an unregistered lobbying firm for far left politicians.”
Musk also pointed to a Reuters article about his “public fight with Apple,” noting that it takes the legacy media days to catch up with what is happening.
“The delayed reaction of regular news is like nonstop déjà vu,” Musk commented.
Meanwhile, MSNBC and NBC News are working overtime to distract, downplay and distort the Twitter files revelations, even suggesting that Musk revealing Twitter engaged in mass censorship makes the company look good.
Republican congressional leader Kevin McCarthy commented Sunday on Musk’s efforts to uncover censorship, noting “What Elon Musk has been able to do, now we know why the White House wanted to fight so strongly against him owning Twitter.”
“All he’s done is put out the truth,” McCarthy continued, adding “Now we need to start looking at Facebook, at Google. These now have become arms of the Democratic Party, arms of the Biden administration.”
“They go after each and every person that questions them. Look at what they’re doing to Elon Musk and the successes that he’s had. He’s not doing anything but putting out papers that he has found,” the minority Congressional leader further asserted.
McCarthy noted that under the previous regime Twitter was assuming “control [of] what we could find out, what we can say, what — whether we could even forward or retweet.”
“How is this different than what’s happening in China today, where they try to control every single person?” McCarthy urged, adding “Where is the uprising in this?”
“They used every arm, not only just of the government, but they have taken over businesses to lie to the American public,” McCarthy charged, warning “This is just the beginning.”
