George Soros Behind The Attacks on Musk and Free Speech


Elon Musk has accused activist groups of “trying to destroy free speech in America” by pressuring advertisers to boycott Twitter, saying Twitter has suffered a “massive” drop in advertising revenues following the campaign.

In a tweet posted to the platform, Mr. Musk said that the pressure campaign was launched even though nothing has changed regarding Twitter’s content moderation efforts and that he and his team did “everything we could to appease the activists.”

NY Sun: He added that what the activists are doing is “extremely messed up,” saying that they are “trying to destroy free speech in America.”

In the days since Mr. Musk took over Twitter, a number of companies have reportedly paused advertising on the platform while the dust he kicked up in the process of buying it settles.

The Wall Street Journal said major players such as General Mills, Mondelez International, Pfizer, and Volkswagen are worried that Mr. Musk’s planned retreat on moderation could lead to an increase in objectionable content; others are concerned about the exodus of executives and want to see what changes he makes before restarting the ads.

The Journal cited one advertising industry executive as saying that about 20 of its clients had suspended advertising. General Motors said last week that it was doing the same, a move it described as normal when a media platform undergoes substantial change. “We are engaging with Twitter to understand the direction of the platform,” GM said.
