Multiple Networks Claim Musk Buyout Undermines Safety of Women, Minorities

'I don't trust Elon Musk to make Twitter better for women at all... '

(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) CBS, NBC, and MSNBC on April 25 dutifully repeated the same talking point about Tesla CEO Elon Musk‘s acquisition of Twitter, warning that the deal could cause “safety problems…”especially for women and minorities,” NewsBusters reported.

Journalists in the mainstream media no longer hide their contempt for free speech.

NBC correspondent Jo Ling Kent shared the concerns of “critics” who argue “that Musk’s pursuit of free speech will collide with growing safety problems on Twitter, especially for women and minorities.”

Kent then aired a pre-recorded interview with Brianna Wu, the Executive Director of Rebellion PAC, in which she asked leading questions, such as whether she believes Musk can “make Twitter better for women.”

“I don’t trust Elon Musk to make Twitter better for women at all,” Wu said, adding that he will not “go to bat for people that are underrepresented,” a dig at Musk’s apparent opposition to prevailing gender and racial ideologies.

CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell said in her opening monologue that Musk’s “hands-off approach to content will make Twitter a haven for disinformation and hate speech.”

O’Donnell claimed that Musk himself had “used the platform to bully critics and reporters.”

Musk has responded to articles about himself or his companies with denunciations including “false” and “misleading.”

O’Donnell then called on correspondent Nikki Battiste to repeat the same warning that Musk’s ownership will allow “bad actors” and “misinformation and disinformation” to “run rampant.”

Kent also appeared on MSNBC, where she opined about Musk being “a very controversial, polarizing owner of Twitter.” Her sources do not trust in the “goodness” of Twitter under Musk, NewsBusters reported.

“A lot of the individuals and critics that we’ve been speaking to in recent weeks say they’re really concerned about safety and violence and threats, especially against women and people of color on Twitter,” she said.
