Elon Musk: ‘Corporate Journalism’ is Defending The State Over People

Criticizing the establishment media is nothing new for Elon Musk. The Twitter CEO continued that trend this week, asking why his release of “The Twitter Files” has been met with skepticism.

“Why is corporate journalism rushing to defend the state instead of the people?” the billionaire tweeted in response to a piece on Leighton Woodhouse’s Substack account.

Musk has provided details about Twitter’s previous leadership working with government agencies to suppress stories to independent journalists Bari Weiss and Matt Taibbi. The reports have been released one at a time since the beginning of December.

While Elon Musk was criticized as a hypocrite after banning journalists from Twitter himself this month while still promoting the Twitter Files in the name of transparency and free speech, their impact has not been dulled.

Previous editions of the Twitter Files have highlighted the platform’s role in shaping Covid-19 information, coordination between the FBI and the platform, and suppression of the New York Post’s story about Hunter Biden.
