Elon Musk Responds to Report He Wants to Buy Conservative News Outlet

On Thursday, Elon Musk said he will not buy One America News Network.

Speculation that the conservative news network might be Musk’s next acquisition was fueled by a tweet from CEO Robert Herring.

“We just received a call from somebody very close to [Musk] telling us that he would like to talk to us about purchasing [OANN],” Herring tweeted.

Musk replied shortly thereafter.

“Only Twitter,” he wrote.

Newsweek labeled Herring’s tweet “either premature or entirely inaccurate.”

Others joined the speculation game on Twitter.

Musk did have media on his mind on Thursday, but not OANN.

OANN has had some hard times of late.

In April, DirecTV kicked OANN out of its lineup, with the move reportedly linked to OANN’s coverage of the 2020 election and the pandemic, according to Newsweek.

“This is an action to redress the unchecked influence and power that Defendants have wielded in an attempt to unlawfully destroy an independent, family-run business and impede the right of American television viewers to watch the news media channels and programs of their choice,” Herring Networks alleged in a suit against AT&T, the parent company of DirecTV.

Musk’s deal to purchase Twitter, which has hit a snare over the number of fake accounts on the social media platform, appears to be moving forward again, according to a report from The Washington Post.

The Post — citing an unnamed source — said Twitter will give Musk full internal data about all of the 500 million tweets posted each day.

Twitter has claimed that about 5 percent of its accounts are fake or scam accounts. However, some outside researchers suggest that the percentage could be double or triple that.

    I hope he doesn’t buy this one, for he is not a conservative. If he buys a publication that has been promoting lies and censoring the trutth, that’s one thing. But for him to buy a conservative forum might change the format of that publication. It may then allow those in the non-conservative groups to push their agendas. The conservative message would then be lost. Hope they don’t sell to such a person.

    It took twitter longer than I expected to hide what they are truly doing before they opened up to allow Elons’ organization to look into the company. It must be a bigger scam than I thought.

      OH, now I see from the leaked documents out of the DGB. They needed time to destroy any evidence that they were working in conjunction with the federal government to ban free speech the DGB, our federal government, found unacceptable.
      How much more of this federal corruption will we take before we force a convention of states????

  • I wish he would, then set about to destroy Rupert Murdoch and his quasi-conservative, Fox News!
