There is no end to the Media’s hatred of Elon Musk.
In the ever-evolving landscape of media scrutiny, Elon Musk finds himself once again under the relentless gaze of critics, notably at Mediaite. The forthcoming book, “Battle for the Bird” by Bloomberg reporter Kurt Wagner, traces the transformation of Twitter from a publicly traded entity, founded by Jack Dorsey, to a privately-held domain overseen by Musk.
As a precursor to the book’s release on February 20, Bloomberg unveiled an excerpt, delving into Musk’s tumultuous journey at the helm of Twitter. The narrative paints Musk as a central figure facing challenges, including the departure of “anxious” advertisers and other trials during his tenure.
Among the revelations, the excerpt discloses Musk’s efforts to counter what he termed the “woke mind virus,” a commitment that triggered a mass exodus of advertisers concerned about the platform’s reputation. Jim Cramer, a prominent figure in financial journalism, remarks on the intensified criticism, stating, “The long knives are out for Elon Musk like I haven’t seen in a long time.”
The narrative unfolds with Musk’s impassioned quest to save Twitter by championing freedom of speech. Despite not immediately altering Twitter’s speech policies, the growing list of advertisers suspending their campaigns raises significant concerns, given that Twitter relies heavily on advertising revenue.
In the backdrop of these revelations, a contentious atmosphere surrounds Elon Musk, with Mediaite at the forefront, perpetuating what some argue is an unjust targeting of the entrepreneur. The media’s portrayal of Musk’s journey with Twitter becomes a focal point in the ongoing narrative of media scrutiny and its impact on influential figures.
