Elon Musk says Twitter obviously has a ‘strong’ left-wing bias; The Tesla CEO cast shade on Twitter after a verified journalist cheered on violence against pro-lifers – Fox Business, May 10, 2022. Excerpt:
Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who is in the process of acquiring Twitter, said the social media platform obviously has a “strong” left-wing bias, commenting on Twitter’s apparent lack of action against a Rewire News Group journalist who tweeted a call for violence against pro-lifers.
“Twitter obv has a strong left wing bias,” Musk tweeted.
He had been responding to conservative influencer Mike Cernovich. Cernovich highlighted a tweet from Rewire News Group journalist Caroline Reilly, who responded to an arson attack against a pro-life non-profit by calling for more violence.

I fear Elon Musk could undermine the ideological diversity, equity and inclusion at Twitter which currently maintains a careful balance of 98.7% for one side. pic.twitter.com/I6JeTuTx9k
