Journalist Sam Stein Tries to Rescue Sen. Markey After Trying to Fight Musk, Who Didn’t Take the Bait
“Are we Russia or China, Sam?”
I am not of the Elon Musk worship clan. He’s not a savior or anything like that, but like President Donald Trump, he can break people just by being.
Musk triggers people just for existing, which helps expose a person’s true intentions and personality.
The whole fiasco over check-marked and verified accounts brought out the mob, including Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA). He wasted his time and a Washington Post reporter’s time by making said reporter develop a fake account, impersonating him, getting verified, etc.
Markey boasted about it because he lacks self-awareness, demanding answers and blah blah from Musk.
A @washingtonpost reporter was able to create a verified account impersonating me—I’m asking for answers from @elonmusk who is putting profits over people and his debt over stopping disinformation. Twitter must explain how this happened and how to prevent it from happening again. pic.twitter.com/R4r7p6mduP

You know, he could have just reported it to Twitter, but that doesn’t give Markey the attention he craves from others. In fact:
Why is no one asking why the Washington Post reporter colluded with you to create false accounts and make Twitter look bad?

Who was the Washington Post reporter who committed the identity fraud on Twitter?

Well, Musk snarked back.
Perhaps it is because your real account sounds like a parody?

Markey, who, I guess, is not used to people mocking him, used the government to attack a private citizen.
One of your companies is under an FTC consent decree. Auto safety watchdog NHTSA is investigating another for killing people. And you’re spending your time picking fights online. Fix your companies. Or Congress will. https://t.co/lE178gPRoM

If that doesn’t scare you, then I don’t know what would.
If Congress can go after Elon Musk, they sure as heck can go after you and me. And we don’t have Musk’s lawyers.
Then here comes Politico White House Editor and MSNBC talking head Sam Stein backing Markey against Musk.
Always risky to attack members of congress. Especially risky with Dems assured of Senate power. Curious play by Musk here. He has many interests before Congress https://t.co/XxEtm6NuBq

Always risky…hmmm…did Stein forget how to do his job? Also, Musk didn’t attack Markey. He snarked and made fun of his Twitter account.
Don’t go through my tweets, Sam!
We all know politicians hunger for power, and the establishment media carries water for the Democrats.
But Musk and Trump made them break any facade they had to expose their true selves.
Now we have receipts proving Markey doesn’t care about his job or his constituents, and Stein finds it “risky” to be anything but agreeable to members of Congress.
@samstein shows publicly how it works. Kiss the ring and bow to the establishment or you’ll be punished. Sam, keep exposing the corruption you seem to relish in and enjoy. The days of “power” will wind down & return to representation. #Corruption https://t.co/zm0CDXefG3 pic.twitter.com/p1zdnkCLNE

This is amazing. Corporate media hacks are very excited for @EdMarkey to take revenge on @elonmusk, a private citizen and taxpayer who didn't properly bend the knee to their ally in the Senate. https://t.co/doKWIuJjvv

No it's not, Sam. They work for the people. They're not special or any better than the rest of us. Sick and tired of politicians and people thinking said politicians are untouchable and sooooo freaking great and magical. https://t.co/93YSFVSlOm

You are a journalist. Maybe reject this premise? https://t.co/iqWVXDbnk0

The media is taking Markey’s side.
This is odd because the media didn’t have a problem when people snarked at Trump.
