Hot take in the Bezos-owned WaPo about need to prevent rich people from controlling media cracks up Elon Musk

The Jeff Bezos-owned Washington Post has published an op-ed written by Ellen Pao, the former CEO of Reddit. For starters, make sure you’re not drinking anything before proceeding.

Ready?

Ok, here goes:

LOL. Really?

Twitter’s largest stockholder and newest board member Elon Musk got a laugh out of all this:

Here’s the entire paragraph from the story:

Musk’s appointment to Twitter’s board shows that we need regulation of social-media platforms to prevent rich people from controlling our channels of communication. For starters, we need consistent definitions of harassment and of content that violates personal privacy. Most companies, I suspect, would welcome such regulations: They would give executives cover to do things they know should be done but which they are afraid to try, out of fear of political backlash or a revolt by some users. If platforms continue to push for growth at all costs — without such regulations — people will continue to be harmed. The people harmed will disproportionately be those who have been harmed for centuries — women and members of marginalized racial and ethnic groups. The people who benefit from unrestricted amplification of their views will also be the same people who have benefited from that privilege for centuries.

Some people sure are nervous at the thought of losing their ability to flag & purge truths by calling it “misinformation” in order to protect preferred narratives.
