Elon Musk Hints Towards Purchasing Substack to Take Down the Mainstream Media
By: Collin Rugg
December 28, 2022 (Updated): Twitter CEO Elon Musk is serious about taking down the corporate media and is putting his money where his mouth is.
Not only has the billionaire purchased Twitter for $44 billion, but he is also open to acquiring Substack, an online content platform, to take down the mainstream media. While responding to tweets on Tuesday evening, Musk expressed his distaste with the media. The first tweet from Musk came earlier in the day when he was responding to a tweet from reporter Leighton Woodhouse which read: “On my substack: Establishment journalists’ response to the Twitter Files is that of a profession committed to protecting the state instead of exposing it.”
Musk replied: “Why is corporate journalism rushing to defend the state instead of the people?”
Popular Twitter account Wall Street Silver responded to Musk’s tweet by suggesting that Musk should acquire Substack through Twitter. “Would it make sense for Twitter to buy Substack and more tightly connect the two platforms. Twitter plus Substack creates instantly massive competition for obsolete legacy corporate media,” Wall Street Silver tweeted.
Musk replied: “I’m open to the idea.” Check it out:
