OA834: Elon Musk Will Save Free Speech By Suing Every Media Outlet on Earth

Andrew and an ailing Liz break down Elon Musk’s latest threat to try and sue a media outlet critical of Twitter into silence – this time, Media Matters for America – through the lens of his last lawsuit, against the tiny charity the Center for Countering Digital Hate, which produced an investigative report showing that Twitter profits from weaponized antisemitism and white supremacy.

Oh, and the duo begin with a Life Comes At You Fast, where Justice Arthur Engoron has already denied the Trump motion for a new trial discussed just last episode!
