Musk's David Faber Interview:

•, by Tyler Durden

Tesla CEO and Twitter owner Elon Musk sat down for an hour-long candid, sprawling interview with CNBC's David Faber on Tuesday following Tesla's 2023 annual shareholder meeting in Austin, Texas. Among many other things, Musk reflected on:

Accusations from the left over his tweets which have been criticized as lending credence to conspiracies about George Soros and a recent mass shooting event in Allen, Texas, insisting "I'll say what I want, and if the consequence of that is losing money, so be it."

Clearly this displeased Musk's critics, who can't comprehend how someone who is hopes to receive major ad dollars (and thus be beholden to the largest US corporations via advertising channel) can speak his mind. In fact, according to Bethany McLean, "Elon Musk sounds like a spoiled child when he talks about free speech," adding that  "If you run a business that depends on advertisers you might have to think about it a little bit differently and Musk seems utterly unwilling to make that distinction." Translation: if you run a business that depends on advertisers, you can't say anything your advertisers disagree with. Which of course is another way of being subject to the censorship of the establishment, and why traditional media is always silent when certain interests - be it of generous advertisers like Pfizer, or the Deep State, or the Bidens, or the Clintons, etc - are in question.
