Why Elon Musk fight back against Media Matters

Published

on

Social media company X on Monday sued media watchdog group Media Matters, alleging the organization defamed the platform after it published a report that said ads for major brands had appeared next to posts touting Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party.

 
X, formerly Twitter, has faced growing outrage since Media Matters published the report on Thursday, which led IBM, Comcast and several other major advertisers to pull ads from the platform in response. The report also came a day after X owner Elon Musk expressed agreement with a post on the platform that falsely claimed Jewish people stoked hatred against white people.

In the lawsuit filed in a U.S. District Court in Texas, X claimed Media Matters “manipulated” the social media platform by using accounts that exclusively followed major brands or users known to produce fringe content, and “resorted to endlessly scrolling and refreshing” the feed until it found ads next to extremist posts.

Media Matters’ report misrepresented the typical experience on X “with the intention of harming X and its business,” the company said in the lawsuit. #featured
