Elon Musk has put the mainstream media on notice, sending an ominous warning that they should “worry” because “we have only just begun.”
Musk’s notice comes as a series of internal document dumps involving the previous owners of his social media platform known as the “Twitter Files” has exposed how the company conspired with Democrat operatives and the intel community to censor the American people.
Certain releases have shown how the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) paid Twitter and colluded with the platform to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop scandal even before it broke, while others showed how the Big Tech company controlled the narrative on COVID.
The revelations have been nothing short of shocking and, should the GOP suddenly develop a spine over the next few years, lead to countless investigations.
But Musk isn’t done yet.
Musk responded to a Substack post written by Leighton Woodhouse in which the reporter analyzed how the media has rushed to defend the intelligence community and the federal government, serving as “the propaganda arm of the state.”
“Why is corporate journalism rushing to defend the state instead of the people?” Musk replied.

Elon Musk Puts the Media on Notice
Elon Musk suggested he might make another power move in the social media world, alluding to the possibility that he could purchase the Substack platform next.
A user named Wall Street Silver wrote: “Twitter plus Substack creates instantly massive competition for obsolete legacy corporate media.”
“I’m open to the idea,” Musk responded.

Musk fired back to a posting by CNBC’s “Squawk Box” which discussed his other company – Tesla – and how it had a down year on the market and advanced the notion the CEO’s “reputation is in danger.”
“His reputation with Twitter is impacting his reputation when it comes to all of his companies,” the CNBC reporter surmised.
“The legacy media should worry about its reputation,” Musk hit back. “We have only just begun.”

Free Speech Hero
Could the ‘Twitter Files’ eventually lead to investigations into how the government and the DNC colluded with a media company to sway a presidential election and to lock down the American people during a pandemic?
If so, Musk’s reveal may well go down as the largest sweeping takedown of one of the most corrupt industries in America today and for the past several decades – the legacy media.
And hopefully, it will lead to a regrowth of honest journalism from the ground up. There is a place in this country for the media of a bygone era. One that questioned the government and exposed real scandals. One that didn’t focus on one man because he was mean to them.
Those journalists have been gone for quite some time. But maybe the sunlight provided by Musk will send the rats scurrying and usher in journalists with integrity and a desire to do what is right by exposing the truth.
Or maybe we’re just being too optimistic.
Why are so many in the media against free speech? This is messed up.

Musk’s efforts to expose the legacy media have even drawn praise from former President Donald Trump.
Trump, in a recent interview, praised Musk for doing the country “a big service” by releasing the ‘Twitter Files’ and called the visionary billionaire a free speech “hero.”
“Yeah, I’d say he’s a hero. I think that it’s a big part of his legacy,” Trump remarked. “I think it’s more important than other things he’s done.”

It might very well be the biggest thing anybody has ever done to expose corruption in the media.
All of it will be for naught, however, if lawmakers fail to investigate the obvious scandal and hold people accountable for their actions.

“All of it will be for naught, however, if lawmakers fail to investigate the obvious scandal and hold people accountable for their actions”.
Therein seems to be the problem. America needs an alternative accountability method. One that is not populated by politicians, those that we obviously cannot trust to do the people’s will. A system removed from the effects of political pressure and monetary influences. Let’s get our thinking caps on folks, we can do this.
the woke and the left will crawl back in their hole
Wish I could work for you. I believe in you. You are a good man
WHY ARE SO MANY OF THE MSM AND THE POLITICAL LEFT SO WORRIED ABOUT “FREE SPEECH”???????…….Let’s hear it folks, get it off your chest…..
I think it’s still the “old politics” that’s played by both sides of the political isle…let’s wait and see what the next House of Repsentatives can and will do…Another show and just political rhetoric until the next election??? It may well be just another the same game will be played by elected officials because they also talk behind closed doors…Don’t they…??
Neither. Trump 2025
What is now needed is a genuine Republican Party – not the current mishmash of wimps and RINO’s led by the Turtle with non-binary vision ! Maybe THEN the Party will be once more worth voting FOR ! Trump in 2024 ? You better believe it ! :)
What incentive do they have to change? All they have to do is say how much worse the Democrat is and the conservatives line up to vote for RINOs. Unless you conservatives dump the Republicans for a cycle or two they don’t have to care about you. Change your registration to Libertarian, donate time and money to Libertarian candidates and vote for those candidates. Otherwise your complaints fall on deaf ears.
The legacy media is owned by six or seven men who are more than ready to turn this country into their private fiefdoms. For those who don’t know their history or what a fiefdom is, the owners of MSM want to turn everyone into ignorant peasants or serfs, i.e. slaves at their beck and call. The leftists think that would be socialism and are all for it. I do NOT relish that thought, but that is where we are headed. I do not wish to live like that.
