As you know if you were with us during the week, a whole lot of journalists (especially the Washington Post’s Max Boot) are “frightened” that Elon Musk might take over Twitter and pull back the lever on content moderation. As Salon’s Matthew Rozsa wrote, it would be “a death blow to the free world.” Musk takes over, reinstates Donald Trump’s Twitter account, Trump wins in 2024, and America is plunged into fascism. That seems to be the biggest fear among liberals: that Trump will be allowed back on Twitter to say whatever he wants.

This is a clip from 2017, but it’s going around again in the wake of Musk’s offer to buy Twitter. Brzezinski and crew fret over Donald Trump undermining the media and making an end-run around cable news. He could “control exactly what people think” — “which is our job,” Brzezinski adds.

What people?

These journalists stick together, that’s for sure. They freaked out when they found out Joe Rogan had a bigger audience than they did and now they’re doing it again.
