Goldberg began his piece stating, “Twitter is a private platform, with broad free speech rights. Under the 1st Amendment, it can choose, if it wishes, to be a home for bigots, 骗子, 煽动者和暴力支持者, allowing them to spread their dangerous messages to the company’s hundreds of millions of users.

He then mentioned how if Musk becomes the new owner, 他 “can opt to stop policing content on his awesomely powerful new platform. He can populate Twitter with QAnoners and antisemites and shady Russian apologists and liars of all stripes, allowing them to spread disinformation and adding to political polarization and division.

And he can justify it in the name of unfettered freedom of expression,” the author added.

Then came Goldberg’s indictment of Musk: “That’s exactly the direction Musk — the world’s richest man, who is in the final stages of buying Twitter for $ 44 billion — seems to be headed.

He then pointed to Musk’s claim that banning Trump had beenmorally wrongon Twitter’s part, though Goldberg asserted, “事实上, 虽然, it is Musk’s position that is morally wrong.

What followed was another exhaustive condemnation of the former president. “Trump is a liar. Untruths, 威胁, fear-mongering and bullying are his weapons of choice; his enemies are mocked and belittled. The Washington Post counted 30,573 false or misleading claims during his four years in office,” 他说.
