Elon Musk Calls Media Matters A ‘Evil Propaganda Machine’

SpaceX and Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk called leftwing media watchdog group Media Matters for America an “evil propaganda machine” in an X.com Spaces conversation Sunday.

Mincing no words, Musk said, “Media Matters is an evil propaganda machine. So I just generally am against evil propaganda machines… And so we are suing them in every country that they operate. And we will pursue not just the organization, but anyone funding that organization.”

“I want to be clear about that. Anyone funding that organization, we will pursue them. Media Matters is an evil propaganda machine. They can go to hell. I hope they do,” Musk added. That was potentially a reference to billionaire financier George Soros. The Democrat financier donated one million dollars to Media Matters for America in 2010.

Musk, who owns X.com, spoke to a panel that included InfoWars radio host Alex Jones, Internet personality Andrew Tate, and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL). Over 15 million users tuned in to the X.com Spaces conversation.

The lawsuit X filed against Media Matters last month in federal court in Fort Worth, Texas, states that the leftwing advocacy group “knowingly and maliciously” manipulated the algorithms on the platforms to portray ads run alongside hateful content “as if they were what typical X users experience on the platform.”

Media Matters’ legal troubles are just beginning. Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey is going after Media Matters too. During an interview on Fox Business Monday, Bailey said, “I believe the right to free speech is the foundation of this republic. We’re in a fight against radical progressive tyrants who will lie, cheat and steal to take that freedom away from Americans.”

“The allegation here is that Media Matters defrauded Missourians in a scheme to take the money and convert it into a manipulation of the marketplace and an attack on the last platform dedicated to free speech in America. So we’re launching an investigation [ … ] to hold wrongdoers accountable to protect Missourians and our constitutional rights,” Bailey added.
