CBS Sunday Morning frequently does segments that have appeal, albeit always with a left-wing slant. They’re tolerable when they do pieces on Brendan Fraser or Christine McVie or vegetables. When they get into politics, they out and out suck. Such it was this morning, when they pulled out the assassin’s knives for Elon Musk. The title was
They deployed a hack named Luke Burbank to carry out the task. The piece began by poo pooing Musk’s venture into Twitter. Burbank sat down with Kara Swisher, someone who professes to know everything about Musk and who lent a soft shoulder to Yoel Roth, who was (amusingly) Twitter’s head of trust and safety who banned Donald Trump because of the “trauma” he suffered on Jan 6. This is an example of Twitter’s state of mind even before Jan 6.
Burbank cites a NY Times article, also critical of Musk
Of course, without citing who the “researchers” were. Musk fired back, calling the report “utterly false.”
But there was to be no balance in this piece. No sir.
This is where I started to burn
“but Musk thinks Twitter’s prior management unfairly stifled conservative speech on Friday when reported Matt Taibbi tweeted a trove of internal emails purporting to prove Twitter’s liberal bias Musk retweeted the thread approvingly.”
No sh*t. Musk made the materials available to Taibbi. The documents weren’t fabricated, they are real. All Taibbi did was post them, along with his commentary and the left-wing fascists went postal on Taibbi. Then CBSSM hauled out the former Chief Security Officer of Facebook, Alex Stamos, who went to the mat defending Twitter’s decision not to allow posting or distribution of anything related to the Hunter Biden laptop, including locking the account of White House spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany and the account of the NY Post. He blathered on, despite the already present admission from Roth that it was a “mistake”, which from the leaked materials we know is also a lie. Then Stamos dives headlong into the cesspool:
“…the idea that it affected the election is just ludicrous…”
No, Stamos, it’s not ludicrous and I pointed this out yesterday.
“..the odds of them being able to execute well over the next year are very long….”
