    Elon Musk

    Elon Musk is really showing to the public of late how much of a hyppicritical piece of garbage he is. After drumming up a bunch of hype over the "Twitter Files" non story, it looks like Elon has topped it.

    It turns out Twitter has decided to block a BBC story at Indias PM Modis request. The documentary details a massacre of Muslims, and the PMs involvement in stopping law enforcement from getting involved.

    Elon of course responded by essentially saying "im super busy guys".

    Its not exactly a secret that Elon has been trying to get tax breaks from India in order to bring Tesla to India. This reeks of BS. Crazy that the free speech absolutist cant stand Biden requesting twitter take down dick pics of his son, but hes willing to be a part of a cover up of a government mass murdering thousands of Muslims.

    But hey. At least we can say the n word on twitter again!

    Watching Taibbi torch his reputation over this has been bizarre. I guess he's trying to follow in Glenn Greenwald's footsteps?

    Itís truly stunning how much of a nothingburger the Twitter files was. Elon paid $44B and mortgaged Tesla to the hilt to get a whimpering fart that no one cared about.

    Just waiting for the musk teat suckers to invade this thread and talk about how great he is and accuse us of praising him in the past.

    Like many other billionaires, he is a fraud who inherited his wealth, exploited droves of people, and lies to everyone about his reputation as "self made". He perpetuates that lie to further the narrative that "The American Dream" is actually a thing, keeping the sheep in line with the idea that capitalism is the best.

    If it was such a nothing burger why did Congress have a hearing with the authors? Watch some of it and the moderates show their true colors. Shame they concede the issues to the Republicans. Ever heard of these reporters or know of their work? I'm guessing no since they are on the left not moderate. And no, they aren't Elon Musk stooges like Rep. Debbie Wasserman pushed and Democratic Delegate Plaskett was just a smear merchant at the hearing calling known leftist and independent reporters republicans stooges. They had acclaimed careers before this. How many times have we seen highly credited experts be talked down by these clowns so they can protect their arses or donors?

    This is the second place, first in East Palestine, I heard the idea that it is problematic to discuss government or corporate malfeasances out of fear of it encouraging unrest or terrorism.

    First Little missy Debbie stated Matt was a "being a republican witness" here today. How so, when he firmly affiliated as an independent reporter? So what is clouding his testimony?

    Then have a problem with how reporters receive and present certain information. That is something that those in power had to worry about since day one. LBJ, Nixon on down and before had trouble with how the press got and present their news report especially if it is about them or their policies. She is a tool

    Then present Matt's article as cherry-picked information which is problematic with no proof that it is. But he is to agree with that. He answers it well considering the land mines she places in her question

    Once again it was her accusation and projection she push as the truth.

    Didn't once talk about the article in itself, it became slamming the messengers. Common deflection

    Didn't expect Matt Taibbi defenders in here, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

    Let's just chalk this up to tribal warfare between the left and moderates. But hey it was great attacking the messenger session by the moderates. Not one so-called progressive or leftist congressional member in that room questioned him or defend him.

    Matt Taibbi has weight on the left so I understand the moderates hate for him by centering on him and then have the mainstream media blowing it up.

    A "profiteering tool" charge coming from F'ing Debbie Wasserman's mouth? What ball does the woman have? *****, you are a politician how much have you profited from backing or pushing certain bills?

    I'm not sure why you expect progressives to rise to the defense of a guy who was happy to amplify what Elon wanted him to.

    And "nobody heard of her" Plaskett didn't have the attention span of a fruit fly as she kept talking to her assistants while Matt was answering her question. Yeah, a real search for the truth here boy and girls. Sorry, the camera broke away from the proceeding before the dog and pony came out.

    Just because congress has a hearing doesn't mean the people testifying are credible. That's backwards of how credibility works.

    Elon sought these people (Taibbi is one of them) out and cherrypicked data to give them to present a narrative that he wanted out there. They knew what they were receiving and what they were being used for.

    Here, with Matt Taibbi it was unwarrantedly done to him by a nobody. Who is this Ms Plaskette that her words carry so much weight with you? We can go down the list of past hearings and see how that ball bounced. But to open one's question by calling an award-winning writer a so-called journalist is definitely slamming the messengers

    BS, mainstream have their list of people they don't want on their shows and Matt is one of them along with others Please don't sit up here and say the left hasn't been purged from the mainstream news media since the Iraq invasion. If Musk gave them a vehicle to be heard I say three cheers to him. And reading how it makes y'all moderates get that constipated look on yours face makes that four cheers

    you are going by little miss debbie account that it was cherry-picked. You believe anything neo-liberal politicians tell you. Remember when they told you that Biden was a progressive president? Boy did we have a good laugh on that one. At least I did when you started believing it.
