Thank you to Aeolus451 for the article.

A LOT, like most of the media aren't picking this up, I think for obvious reasons, they don't want to Streisand effect this but it seems the Musk wants to go hard in on the media and fix it. The fact that no media are reporting on this is a sign they are running scared.

The man sees a global problem and he can't seem to act. To be honest, I used to think this guy was a bit of a Zukerberg but after the last two years and looking at what he has done in the past I see only a man who had slight autism when he was young, made millions from the tech industry and over his life has only wanted to create a better world and I don't think, beyond basic human instincts, the man has a bad bone in his body.

This man is a legend, I've seen the idea pushed many times in the past but maybe Musk can bring it in as others have failed. Perhaps the Tesla of the 21st century but with enough public support not to get pushed aside or destroyed by competitors. 

I;m not gay but I'd suck Musks dick if he asked.

Is that really necessary?



Ah, I can;t find the article and everything else seems to be bashing it HARSHLY. If someone could help be out here it would be appreciated. Videos will do at this point, seems the media is going balls deep on fucking musk at the moment.

Maybe google is against me and hiding articles I was looking at earlier but all I can find now is Stan lee's support..that isn't full on bastardization.

Yes, It shows I support the man enough to go against my own base instincts. I find this the true show of support for anybody. If a gay man licked pussy for a cause, I'd be the first to rally that cause.

It's literally the stupidest idea I've ever heard. You can't trust the general public to honestly and objectively review the authenticity of an article much less an entire publication. Even if he places stringent standards of who can contribute to the site, it will be so filled with Elon Musk worshiping Libertarians that it will be an effectively worthless measure of objectivity and more of a measure of how pro-Libertarian or pro-Musk something is.

The real problem with the media (all media, independent media included) is the profit model. These are businesses, and they make money through advertising. To make money through advertising you need views. To get views you need to pander, bait, and sensationalize. Elon Musk cannot fix that with a Yelp for journalism.

If you want objective journalism read the Associated Press, that is literally their entire shtick. It's dry, boring, but informative.

Well said. I do disagree about the associated press though. ...I guess that's the damn problem though. The AP are among the better organisations but look into them a bit further and well, it's the same story.

Musk is an idealist. Many of his ideas are good, but not many (if any) can be completely fulfilled, at least not in his lifetime - and subsequently not in ours.
