Musk’s Role Model Murdoch gave rise to the birth of countless right-wing voices throughout America all with their hands out. But Musk is a billionaire and unlike the Koch, bros love to be out in the open like Trump.
Musk used jargon-laden tweets to hint at a more right-leaning and disinfo-laden site, he showed up in a box seat next to Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch at the Super Bowl. Murdoch, of course, has spent years using the trappings of cable news to create the illusion of credibility for right-wing propaganda. He did so by claiming right wing lies were necessary as “balance” to the mainstream media. Musk’s presence by his side was a clear signal that Musk has similar goals for using social media to whitewash repugnant lies. The good news is that his overall poor management of Twitter has caused a stampede of advertisers out the door. The company may not be around long enough to do the damage Musk is hoping for.
