Thought for the day

"The supreme trick of mass insanity is that it persuades you that the only abnormal person is the one who refuses to join in the madness of others, the one who tries vainly to resist. We will never understand totalitarianism if we do not understand that people rarely have the strength to be uncommon." -- Eugene Ionesco

Elon Musk has slammed journalists who are criticizing Matt Taibbi for releasing documents about Twitter's suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story.

In a Twitter Spaces call on Saturday, the 51-year-old billionaire said reporters who are smearing Taibbi for revealing how the social media giant took down tweets about Biden's laptop should 'look in the mirror' and confront their own deceitfulness to 'the American people,' saying they were 'not being truthful' about the story.

The platform’s new CEO has made it possible to openly discuss information suppression efforts

Elon Musk’s release of the ‘Twitter files’ on Friday night confirmed what Donald Trump and many conservatives had long suspected, but could not prove: that the Biden campaign colluded with social media companies to shut down reporting on the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop, embarrassing his father, the now-president Joe Biden.

The Daily Wire reports that the federal government paid a group of journalists known as "Hacks/Hackers" to create software that would encourage everyday Americans to challenge posts by their friends.

The purpose was to get people to go after their friends over "misinformation" or "incorrect data" on their posts. Worst of all, it appears that the federal government forked over $5 million to this group to get this done.

This week several major web browsers quickly severed ties with a mysterious software company used to certify the security of websites, three weeks after the Washington Post exposed its connections to a US military contractor, the Post reports.

We’ve been hearing some bombshell revelations as a result of the files released by Twitter owner Elon Musk showing the prior suppression of free speech.

The files showed the Biden team was asking to have people suspended, including regarding people who were posting information that had been found on the Hunter Biden laptop.

Elon Musk gave the Twitter files over to journalist Matt Taibbi.

Taibbi put together a report he published on Twitter on Friday and it’s wild.

Team Biden was colluding with Twitter to ban pro-Trump material even before the election. This is really a complete outrage, and worse than even I thought it was. I assumed there were pro-Biden people at Twitter who were just doing it for The Party. Biden’s own people sending the emails is beyond the pale.

To give a short explainer, the talented Matt Taibbi posted internal Twitter documents around the 2020 presidential election which demonstrated how political operations – such as the Biden presidential campaign and the DNC – petitioned the company to remove “offending” tweets. Twitter complied. The Trump White House would make similar requests, but as Taibbi observe, “this system wasn’t balanced.” Instead, it was based on contacts. And as you can imagine, Twitter’s staff, especially at the highest levels, was far left and supported the Democrats.

In China, authoritarians flood Twitter with ads for prostitutes and pornography in an effort to prevent users from obtaining information about protests.

Elon Musk says Twitter's censorship of Hunter Biden laptop story was the 'definition of election interference' and that firm 'was acting as an arm of the DNC' MikeRivero Sun, 12/04/2022 - 08:39

Elon Musk has claimed that Twitter's censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop scandal was tantamount to interference in the 2020 election.
