In One Hour, Elon Musk Just Became A MASSIVE Existential Threat To The Mainstream Media

On Wednesday afternoon, Elon Musk ripped the mainstream media for their miserable credibility and constant fake news.

Musk began his tweet storm with a quote tweet of a negative Tesla article, “The holier-than-thou hypocrisy of big media companies who lay claim to the truth, but publish only enough to sugarcoat the lie, is why the public no longer respects them.”

Problem is journos are under constant pressure to get max clicks & earn advertising dollars or get fired. Tricky situation, as Tesla doesn’t advertise, but fossil fuel companies & gas/diesel car companies are among world’s biggest advertisers.

Musk then became a threat to the media: “Going to create a site where the public can rate the core truth of any article & track the credibility score over time of each journalist, editor & publication. Thinking of calling it Pravda …”

After Andrew Hawkins called Musk a “Trump figure,” Musk dropped the bomb on him: “Thought you’d say that. Anytime anyone criticizes the media, the media shrieks “You’re just like Trump!” Why do you think he got elected in the first place? Because no ones believes you any more. You lost your credibility a long time ago.”

Musk then tweeted a poll which received over 250,000 votes with 87% supporting his idea for a “media credibility website.”

He added, “Even if some of the public doesn’t care about the credibility score, the journalists, editors & publications will. It is how they define themselves.”

He concluded, “If you’re in media & don’t want Pravda to exist, write an article telling your readers to vote against it …”

President Trump has constantly blasted the fake news media; most notably, fake news CNN.

Recent approval ratings haven’t treated CNN or MSNBC too well either.

What do you think about Musk’s new website idea?
