Elon Musk buys Twitter, sparking concern from Democrats

Except he did not state that, nor even remotely suggest that (Fox can be just as bad as any other media outlet).

Oh, I agree. There’s a lot I hate about Fox- not because they’re right-leaning, but because they use a lot of the same bait-and-switch headlines that the left-leaning news companies also use. It’s still a funny article.

Don’t worry, though, the new Disinformation Bureau will straighten out all these headlines, I’m sure. :roll_eyes:

It is almost amusing, but also a disconcerting, that Orwell’s dystopian future is being created now in the USA. They should have just called it the Ministry of Truth, but even that reference would be lost on most now living in the USA, but at least it would be an honest reference to what it is.

Fox is mostly a telletubby cartoon comedy network. Just look at the men’s blue suits, women’s skittles outfits and the clown makeup. They all look ridiculous.

Most of our big news organizations are just entertainment companies. Fox is no different than them, in that regard.

I’d recommend a better alternative, but frankly I’ve been searching for a trustworthy news site for years, and I still haven’t found one.

“By ‘Free Speech’ , I simply mean that which matches the law. I am against the censorship that goes far beyond the law. If people want less free speech, they will ask the government to pass
laws to that effect. Therefore’ going beyond the law is contrary to the will of the people.”

Sounds exactly like “military intelligence”.

Truth is whatever corresponds to reality, grass is green, skies are blue, there will be an invasion May 24, 2022 and our country will be lost forever!

That’s truth. We don’t need to search for it, it’s not under a rock, it’s right in front of our faces! You can feel it like flames on your eyebrows!
We can handle it, we’re just not doing anything about it!

Concerning the “lady” in charge of the truth…
…the lady doth protest too much, methinks

Beware of the likes of Musk, or Fox News. They lie in wait and show their true selves at the critical moment.

Me thinks you need a reality check. :roll_eyes:
Get your head out of your :poop:
Or are you part of the problem?
Instead of part of the solution!
You sound like a member of the, Department of Disinformation!

Why are you so afraid of free speech???

Not of free speach. Of fake free speach, 5th column, etc.
Do you trust Musk? Do you know his history, with donations to ACLU?
Do you trust Tucker? Why? I am old enough to remember him saying things pretty left of center. It makes you wonder if this person evolved, or if he if waiting to pull a chris walllace during important debate.

We all change. For better or worse. Other wise, yes, I do watch Carlson and Fox. Musk is a wild card at this time, we will see. :man_shrugging:

Can you qualify that statement?
And what did we have to be aware of before the despot took control?
The truth is painful, and Trump gave us as much truth as we could handle! The “swamp” the “media”, I can’t believe everything he said was true and is still coming true!

Truth is, had he still been in office, we wouldn’t be here “being aware of Musk and FOX” as you so eloquently put it!
We were safer and richer in more ways than one!
The only thing we need to be aware of, is how quickly, socialism will take hold of our Republic!
Beware of the devil, he’s the one that makes you think he doesn’t exist! Despots do exist and we are living with two maybe three if you count Putin!

What do you want me to tell you that you dont already know?
Some pretty bad choices were made by the previous administration while it was in office. Chris Wallace as moderator for important debate. Twitter as platform for communication between WH and electorate. Looking back, these are examples of traps, and there were signs they were traps.
Well, lets see if Trick Me Twice, Thrice or More will be the motto for 2022 and 2024 elections.
Me -I am old school, reputation matters to me. Twitter is a disreputable platform. They got “algorithms”. I dont care if Musk now owns it, he had not committed to replace the workforce or open up to external freedom of speech audit… I have no plan to open an account, to consume information, or to trust anything from Twitter.

Musk’s Twitter Takeover Threatens Our Democracy With Unrestricted Speech

That’s hysterical! :rofl:

Yeah, I saw a couple more headlines today calling Musk a right-wing extremist.
Let that be a lesson to us. No matter how much political favor you think you have, they will run you over with a bus the first time you do something they don’t like.
