Steven Crowder and others try to make sense of AP’s “free speech” attempt on Elon Musk and Twitter – twitchy.com

Last night we told the Associated Press that Elon Musk has “he has long used Twitter to attack those who disagree with him”, and the AP apparently thought there was a “fuck” to have in comparing this to why Musk wants to own the social media platform:

Steven Crowder is among those a little baffled by that shot:

And so is almost everyone else:

The AP tried so hard.

The fact that someone at the AP thought it was some kind of “gotcha” is pretty surprising.

Speaking of contradictions, this part of the AP history (which is also part of the title of the story) is full of irony and unawareness:

But if 50-year-old Musk’s move has clarified anything, this is it thrives on contradiction.

Musk boasts that he acquired Twitter to defend free speech. But he has long used the platform to attack perceived enemies who dare to disagree with him.

He is extremely confident in his own judgment and abilities. But he openly acknowledged the vulnerabilities, revealing his anguish over a breakup in a 2017 interview with Rolling Stone and telling a Saturday Night Live audience last year that he was the show’s first host with the syndrome. Asperger’s.

In this case, the AP saying Musk “lives on contradiction” is a military-grade projection.
