'You Just Lied': Elon Musk Slaughters BBC Reporter In Live InterviewApr 14, 2023
free speech is meaningless unless you allow people you don't like to say things you don't like; otherwise it's relevant and if at the point where you lose free speech it doesn't come back I think the problem some people have is a lot of people were brought back I mean some people were brought here and they were previously banned for spreading things like q and in conspiracies, you have people like Andrew who were brought back and previously banned for things like hate speech, you think? you prioritize free speech over misinformation and hate speech well you know who can say something is misinformation who is the arbiter of that is PVC and you literally ask me yes well no you want the arbitrations here on twitter because your own twitter yeah so i'm saying who is to say one person's misinformation is someone else's information at the point where you said there is uh this is misinformation like who is this information can be dangerous that it can cause real world damage that can potentially cause um yeah so the point of the traffic is that the BBC itself has sometimes posted things that are false.
Are you okay with that as a card? I'm pretty sure the BBC have said things before that turn out not to be true whatever 100 years of history I'm pretty sure they have even if you aspire to be accurate there are times when you don't you will. We've talked to people very recently who were involved in moderation and they
justaren't enough people to police these things particularly around um particularly around hate speech um at the company you're talking about I mean you use Twitter do you see an increase in hate speech i mean just a personal anecdote like what i personally not my uh for you i would see i get more of that type of content yes personally but i'm not going to talk to talk to the rest of for the rest of Twitter you see more hate speech personally I would say you would see more hateful content in that content you don't like or hateful what does describe something hateful yes just content that will solicit a reaction something that can include something that is slightly sexist that kind of that kind of thing, so you think if something is slightly sexist it should be banned.
I'm asking for specific examples, um, and if you just said that if something is slightly sexist, that's hateful content, does that mean it should be? bad good you asked me you asked me if my feed has less or more I would say it has a little more so I ask you for examples can you give me an example? I honestly don't need to. I honestly can't name a single example. I'll tell you why, because I don't really use it for your feeds anymore because I don't like it that much. A lot of people, a lot of people are pretty similar.
You just said you've seen more hateful content, but you can't name a single example, not even one. I'm not sure I used that rate for the last one because I've been. I have been using. I've been using Twitter since you took over for the last six months, so you must have seen at some point that you thought your content was hateful. I'm asking for an example, right? You can't give a simple one and I. I'm saying sir you don't know what you're talking about you really do because there can't be a single example of hate content not even a tweet and yet you claim the hate content was high well that it's a fake no I created a slide what no no what I'm stating was uh there are many uh organizations that say that kind of information is on the rise now if you have a lot of examples I mean correct the strategic dialogue uh Institute in the U in the UK will say that, so people will say all kinds of nonsense.
I'm literally asking for a single example and you can't name one correctly and like I said I don't use that feed but how did you do it? I know I don't think this is getting anything. You literally said you experienced more hateful content and then couldn't name a single correct example and like I said, that's absurd. you would know this beautiful content because I'm saying that's what I saw a few weeks ago. I can't give you an exact example, let's go on, we have, we only have a certain amount of time. The BBC doesn't set the rules on Twitter, so I'm asking you no.
I'm talking about the BBC misinformation about greed. I'm just asking them about how to change the labels. Covert misinformation labels. There used to be a policy. and then that went away, why is that cover up no longer an issue? Does the BBC hold itself responsible for misinformation about vaccine masking and side effects and not report on that at all and what about the fact that the BBC was pressured? by the British government to change editorial policy, do you know this is not an
interviewon the BBC? Oh, you thought it wasn't and now I see why you've made space on Twitter.
I am not a representative of the BBC Editorial Policy. I want to make that clear. Let's talk about something else, okay, let's talk about something else you didn't expect.
