If you are surprised by this revelation, you haven’t been paying attention to the far left. This is exactly what I expected. This comes out after Elon Musk questioned who was funding the effort to get advertisers to drop Twitter. This an open threat to Elon Musk, who will have a heavy debt burden and if these groups are successful, they are hoping to stop Musk from buying Twitter.
If they can do that the wholesale censoring of conservatives can continue as it did before. Twenty six NGOs signed a letter which they sent to advertisers warning them to pull their ads from the platform. The letter says that Twitter will turn radical. They warn the advertisers that their brands will suffer as they become linked to hate speech and misinformation.
Here is the letter:
The letter was signed by the 26 groups was sent on headed paper bearing the logos of Accountable Tech, Media Matters for America, and Ultraviolet. Media Matters is a slime machine that was co-founded by David Brock and Hillary Clinton and financed by George Soros. Media Matters denies that Hillary was one of its founders, but here is what she said previously:
“We are certainly better prepared and more focused on, you know, taking our arguments, and making them effective, and disseminating them widely in a lot of the new progressive infrastructure, institutions that I helped to start and support like Media Matters and Center for American Progress.”
‘Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter will further toxify our information ecosystem and be a direct threat to public safety, especially among those already most vulnerable and marginalized,’ they wrote.
They warned that advertising on Twitter would see their company ‘risks association with a platform amplifying hate, extremism, health misinformation, and conspiracy theorists.’
The authors continued: ‘Under Musk’s management, Twitter risks becoming a cesspool of misinformation, with your brand attached, polluting our information ecosystem in a time where trust in institutions and news media is already at an all-time low.
‘Your ad dollars can either fund Musk’s vanity project or hold him to account. We call on you to demand Musk uphold these basic standards of community trust and safety, and to pull your advertising spending from Twitter if they are not.’
