Elon Musk Trolls The New York Times, CBS News For Returning To Twitter,

CBS News stopped posting content on Twitter over the social media company’s alleged “insecurity” under new CEO Elon Musk. However, the news network couldn’t make it for a full 48 hours before returning to Twitter.

CBS News is returning to Twitter after a very brief hiatus

The official CBS News Twitter account stopped posting at 3:45 p.m. Friday.

“Given the uncertainty surrounding Twitter and as a precautionary measure, CBS News is suspending its activity on the social media site while it continues to monitor the platform,” CBS News said in a statement Friday.

CBS News and other CBS-owned entities have stopped using Twitter.

However, CBS News didn’t make it two days before returning to Twitter and tweeting Sunday morning — just hours after Musk restored former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account.

At 9:36 a.m. Sunday, CBS News tweeted: “After taking a break for most of the weekend to assess the safety concerns, CBS News and stations are resuming their activity on Twitter as we continue to monitor the situation.”

Musk responded to the tweet with a laughing hand over the face emoji.

Musk later trolled CBS News by posting a meme referencing the 2005 film Brokeback Mountain starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger. The tweet was captioned, “Our love will never die.”

CBS News scoffed at reactions on Twitter

others thoroughly mocked CBS News for returning to Twitter.

BlazeTV host Jason Whitlock: “Clowns.”

Podcast Host Lauren Chen: “CBS has attempted to race Twitter for attention but has predictably crawled back.”

journalist Michael Tracy: “Please keep us all updated on the very real situation you are definitely monitoring carefully.”

Clinical Psychologist Jordan Peterson: “Translation: ‘We have signaled virtue too impulsively and are now hastily backtracking, though we strive not to take responsibility for the consequences of our stupidity.'”

Investigative journalist Mairead Elordi: “‘I’m running away from home’ vibes.”

Independent journalist Glen Greenwald: “CBS News has decided it’s safe to use Twitter again — but only for now! They will continue to ‘assess security concerns’ and ‘monitor the situation’. If there are more outbursts of free speech or hearing from people who don’t like journalists, they might back off.”

Elon Musk slams New York Times as ‘far left brainwashing’

CBS News wasn’t the only legacy media outlet to ridicule Musk on Sunday.

Author and independent journalist Matt Taibbi posted a tweet linking to his article substack entitled: “No, New York Times, you ‘deserve no better’ than Donald Trump.”

Taibbi criticized the New York Times editorial board for responding to Trump’s announcement of his 2024 presidential candidacy with an article claiming that “America deserves better than Donald Trump.”

Taibbi wrote on Twitter: “The New York Times says America doesn’t ‘deserve’ Donald Trump, but the Times certainly does, especially after winning a Pulitzer on a story that’s been botched for years.”

The tweet included headlines from older NYT articles accusing Trump of collusion with Russia during the 2016 election.

Last July, New York Times columnist Bret Stephens authorized“To date, few anti-Trumpers have been honest with themselves about the elaborate swindle — there’s just no other word for it — that was the Steele dossier and all the bogus allegations that the mainstream media gullibly parroted it.”

Musk replied to Taibbi: “It’s tragic how far the New York Times has fallen – basically just boring brainwashing from the far left. The boring part is truly unforgivable!”

Musk mocked the Gray Lady mottofirst used in 1896 by former New York Times owner Adolph Simon Ochs.

Musk satirically berated the New York Times: “‘All the news that’s fit to print’ my ass.”
