Elon Musk calls NY Times ‘lobbying firm for far left’ over silence on Twitter Files censorship story

The bombshell publication of materials showing how Twitter censored the Hunter Biden laptop story as well as colluded with members of his father’s 2020 presidential campaign team to ban users is the biggest story of the year but was completely ignored by the New York Times, a damning indictment of media corruption that was blasted by billionaire Elon Musk who now owns the social media giant.

Friday’s initial installment of the “Twitter Files” which were posted to the platform by journalist Matt Taibbi drew the usual swarming of blue checks who attacked the source but also complete silence from the Times and several other top media outlets that have served as water carriers for the Democratic party and its deep bench of corrupt politicians.

Responding to a tweet by Outkick founder and nationally syndicated radio host Clay Travis that the nation’s so-called “newspaper of record” didn’t have a single article on the stunning proof of Twitter’s suppression of a story that could have swung the election to President Donald J. Trump and altered the course of history by keeping Joe Biden and his band of political ideologues out of the White House.

“That is because The New York Times has become, for all intents and purposes, an unregistered lobbying firm for far left politicians,” Musk tweeted in his response to Travis.

In a functional media environment it would be newsworthy to honestly report on such a major story showing how Democrats and top leadership at the San Francisco-based company worked hand in hand to silence opposition, quash politically damaging stories like the New York Post’s scoop about the party’s presidential candidate’s crooked, crack-smoking, sexual degenerate son by colluding with members of the “Biden team” as well as using “extraordinary steps” to keep the report off of Twitter in the weeks before the election, but the domestic mainstream media is broken beyond repair, especially the most influential newspaper in the country.

While the NYT didn’t see fit to report on the Twitter censorship regime, they did feature two other stories about Musk who has received the Trump treatment from the corrupt press ever since his $44 billion deal to buy the tech giant was finalized and he made immediate moves to restore free speech to the platform, including cleaning house with CEO Parag Agrawal and chief censor Vijaya Gadde who were fired hours after he took over.

One story was about Twitter missing its advertising targets after leftists declared economic war with the bullying of corporations to pull their ads off of the platform.

In the other story, the usual collection of anti-free speech groups and so-called “experts” claimed that since his acquisition of the platform and leveling of the playing field that Musk has “sent up the Bat Signal to every kind of racist, misogynist and homophobe that Twitter was open for business,” according to Imran Ahmed of the London-based Center for Countering Digital Hate, a go-to guy for media when it comes to justifying the continued censorship of all voices not approved by the authoritarian leftist establishment.

Travis also pointed out that while the New York Times didn’t see it fit to report on the Taibbi’s Twitter bombshell that it was business as usual when it comes to race-baiting regarding the Georgia runoff election and black Republican candidate Herschel Walker, claiming on the editorial page that it is racist for white people to vote for the former NFL star.

Also not reporting on the corruption and election manipulation at Twitter were the Washington Post with its ludicrous “Democracy Dies in Darkness” slogan that was rolled out after Trump pulled the political upset of the century against Hillary Clinton as well as ABC and CBS News.

Other media outlets did report on “The Twitter Files” but did so in a slanted, misleading and typically biased manner to dismiss the explosive revelations in the published documents.
