Musk vs. Media Matters and the Smear Merchants
Plus: I sit for an in-depth interview with Jonathan Tobin on U.S.-Israel policy and the Jew-hatred that fuses Islamic supremacists and the left
Elon Musk just opened a new front in the war for free speech in a Fort Worth federal court.
There, his X launched a legal missile against Media Matters for America, the longtime left-wing speech assassin and smear merchant that masquerades as a “progressive research and information center.”
X alleges the nonprofit — founded by Democratic hatchet man David Brock, funded by the likes of progressive billionaire George Soros and fixated on canceling conservative voices such as the late Rush Limbaugh and hosts on Fox News — has trained its sights on obliterating the platform formerly known as Twitter.
Media Matters sought to defame and damage the platform by executing the dirtiest of dirty tricks.
I write about the sinister effort to destroy X’s business model, and its broader significance in a new piece you can read in tomorrow’s physical New York Post, or this evening right here.
Jewish New Service editor-in-chief Jonathan Tobin ask me to come on his “Top Story with Jonathan Tobin” podcast this week to talk about the takeover of America’s elite institutions by the radical left and Islamic supremacists, the ideological underpinnings of this unholy alliance, and its political implications.

In a separate long-form interview with Ezra Levant for his “The Ezra Levant Show,” I spoke about the state of U.S. national security and foreign policy from China and the Middle East to the homeland.

Happy Thanksgiving all!
