Musk Celebrates Missouri Lawsuit Against ‘Evil’ Media Matters

On Monday, tech billionaire Elon Musk celebrated the news that Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey (R) had filed a lawsuit against far-left “watchdog group” Media Matters for America over the group’s targeting of advertisers on X, formerly known as Twitter.

While Media Matters claims to be a “watchdog group” aimed at “monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media,” the group’s actions show that it is basically designed to smear any individual or entity that disagrees with the far-left’s agenda — attempting to bully advertisers into stripping ads from any right-leaning person or entity by any means necessary, most often involving taking statements out of context.

Bailey announced on Monday that he had filed a lawsuit against Media Matters for one of its latest smear campaigns — the effort to strip X of advertising revenue solely because the organization hates Musk and the free speech that he brought to the platform.

“I am filing suit against Media Matters to force them to turn over documents regarding their solicitation of donations to bully advertisers into pulling out of X, the last platform dedicated to free speech in America,” Bailey wrote in a post on X, sharing images of the lawsuit documents.

Musk had previously sued Media Matters over these efforts, pointing to a hit piece published by the organization that falsely claimed advertisements had appeared next to White supremacist messages on X. It was later proven that the leftist organization had created a fake X account, followed only White supremacist accounts and manipulated the algorithm into showing ads next to these posts — with X later revealing that not a single other user had seen these ads near racist posts.

Bailey’s lawsuit made similar accusations against the group.

“My office has reason to believe Media Matters used fraud to solicit donations from Missourians in order to bully advertisers into pulling out of X, the last social media platform dedicated to free speech in America, so we launched an investigation to get to the bottom of it,” Bailey added in a statement about the lawsuit. “I’m not going to let this activist group stonewall us. If there has been any attempt to defraud Missourians in order to trample on their free speech rights, I will root it out and hold bad actors accountable.”

Musk thanked Bailey for his efforts in a response to his X post.

“Much appreciated! Media Matters is doing everything it can to undermine the First Amendment,” he wrote.

“Truly an evil organization,” Musk added.
