Elon Musk calls himself a free-speech absolutist being openly critical of Twitter social media platform policies.

It has been revealed that Governments are behind an Anti-Musk campaign.

A signed letter has been sent to companies advertising on Twitter, aiming to force companies to boycott Twitter.

A group of 26 activist organisations and NGOs signed the letter, stating concerns on hate speech, dangerous scientific theories, and a direct threat to public safety, also arguing that trust in news media was already at an all-time low and further polluting information would create a cesspool of misinformation.

Musk’s pledge to restore freedom of speech in response to the letter Musk demanded to know who was funding them.

The answer is a number of “dark money groups” including George Soro’s Open Society Foundation, NGOs founded by former Obama and Clinton administration staffers, wealthy Democrat donors and their family foundations, Labour unions, and European Governments.

ACCOUNTABLE TECH – NICOLE GILL, CO-FOUNDER AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Accountable Tech is a Washington DC-based group led by Nicole Gill, a political campaigner and founder of the 2017 Tax March, and Jesse Lehrich, a former foreign policy spokesman for Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the nephew of David Axelrod, former senior adviser to Barack Obama.

‘Social media giants are eroding our consensus reality and pushing democracy to the brink,’ they state on their website.

‘Accountable Tech is fighting back.’

Founded in May 2020, the group is a 501(c)(4), which means it does not have to disclose its donor list, and it does not say on the website who funds it.

 MEDIA MATTERS FOR AMERICA – DAVID BROCK, FOUNDER AND CHAIRMAN

Media Matters for America was begun in May 2004 by David Brock – a former conservative journalist who turned liberal, and in 2017 was described by Politico as the ‘Democrats’ attack dog’.

‘The Clinton enforcer, who raised tens of millions of dollars and created a far-reaching web of outside groups to push her presidential candidacy, is now training his sights on Trump,’ they wrote at the time.

‘Brock is rallying Democratic megadonors behind his cause and while he can be controversial at times, few bet against his efforts. His tentacles are far-reaching, including his media monitoring nonprofit Media Matters and the opposition research super PAC American Bridge.’

Media Matters for America says it is ‘dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media.’

According to Influence Watch, the group was founded with about $2 million in donations from prominent liberal donors, such as Susie Tompkins Buell, the 78-year-old co-founder of clothing brands Esprit and The North Face; Leo Hindery, 74, a private equity investor specializing in media; and James Hormel, who died in August aged 88.

Hormel was heir to a meatpacking fortune, and the first openly gay man to represent the United States as an ambassador – to Luxembourg, from 1997. He also co-founded in 1981 the Human Rights Campaign – the nation’s preeminent gay rights group.

Media Matters is funded by a coalition of donors, including the National Education Association – America’s largest union, representing teachers and other school staff – and several Jewish groups, such as the Combined Jewish Philanthropies of Greater Boston and Community Foundation of the United Jewish Federation of San Diego.
