MSNBC: It's 'Our Job to Control How People Think, Not Elon Musk's'
'The dangerous edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media'
As Telsa CEO Elon Musk attempts to take over Twitter, a video clip has resurfaced from MSNBC, which reminds us how the corporate media wants to control how people think.
As Musk offers to buy the social media platform at a significant premium for shareholders, a brief MSNBC clip from 2017 perfectly summarizes where the real panic lies.
MSNBC's "Morning Joe" host Mika Brzezinski said the following words in her out-loud voice:
"The dangerous edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media, trying to make up his own facts, and it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsen," Brzezinski said.
"He could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think..." the host said.
And then the nail in the "oops, I just told the truth coffin":
"...and that is our job," Brzezinski declared.
"Yeah," Joe Scarborough replies.

On Friday, Brezinski doubled down, sounding the alarm over Twitter’s possible management shakeup, calling a hypothetical Elon Musk takeover a "very dangerous precedent" for America.
"...are there any ways to stop him if he wants to buy Twitter?
"Are there any guardrails around something like this?
"Because this could be a very dangerous precedent," she added.
"He does not believe in the consequences of words," added Brezinki's guest, who had written earlier that "Elon Musk’s attempt to buy Twitter represents a chilling new threat: billionaire trolls taking over social media."
The Tesla CEO made an offer of $54.20 per share for all of Twitter’s shares, a bid worth more than $40 billion.
While Musk’s potential partners are unknown, sources told the post that one could be Silver Lake Partners.
Musk has worked with the company in the past, and it is co-run by one of the members of Twitter’s board of directors.
