Oh boy, oh boy! Hold on to your hats, folks, because there’s some spicy drama happening in the Twitterverse! Our favorite billionaire bad boy, Elon Musk, has just yanked the New York Times’ golden verification badge. Yep, you heard that right. The liberal outlet is no longer in the exclusive club of verified accounts. Ouch!

Now, you might be wondering why Musk would do such a thing. Well, let’s just say he’s not exactly besties with the New York Times. In fact, he’s been calling them out for spreading fake news like a broken vending machine spits out stale snacks. And boy, does he have a point!
BREAKING: NEW YORK TIMES CHANGES HEADLINES 3 TIMES AFTER ISRAELI PROPAGANDA- ZIONIST CONTROL OF THE MEDIA

You see, there’s been a recent debacle between the New York Times and Musk over a headline about a bombing in Gaza. The Times accused Israel of the attack, completely ignoring the fact that it was actually those lovely folks from Hamas who misfired a rocket and caused the devastation. Talk about twisting the truth!
But that’s not all. The New York Times had to change their headline not once, not twice, but THREE times because they couldn’t get their facts straight. And yet, they have the audacity to call themselves journalists? Ha!
Musk has been teasing the New York Times for ages, calling them a declining and archaic publication. And you know what? He’s absolutely right! Their traffic on Twitter is down a whopping 50 percent since August. I mean, who wants to read their biased drivel anyway?
So, what’s Musk’s latest move? Well, he’s not one to sit idly by while the New York Times spreads its propaganda. He’s put a five-second delay on users accessing their articles. Brilliant, right? It’s like giving them a taste of their own medicine! Maybe now people will spend more time on X and less time getting brainwashed by the mainstream media.
But wait, there’s more! Musk has been getting flak for his support of conservatives and criticism of Democrats. Oh, the horror! He actually praised Tucker Carlson, the fearless Fox News host, for his work on the platform. And he even showed some love for Governor Ron DeSantis’s potential presidential campaign. You gotta love a guy who’s not afraid to speak his mind, even if it goes against the liberal echo chamber.
In the end, it’s clear that Musk is just playing by his own rules. He’s not afraid to call out the New York Times for their fake news and he’s not afraid to ruffle some feathers in the process. So, here’s to you, Elon Musk. Keep fighting the good fight and giving those liberal media giants a run for their money!
