  • Twitter CEO Elon Musk threatened the reputation of “legacy media” in a cryptic tweet early Wednesday.
  • Musk responded to a clip of CNBC’s “Squawk Box” where Axios business reporter Hope King argued his reputation with Twitter is damaging his stocks and success in his other companies, particularly Tesla. The electric car company’s stock shares have dropped profoundly since his October 27 takeover of Twitter.
  • Musk, in conjunction with several independent journalists, has been releasing “The Twitter Files.” Based on internal company documents, they paint a picture of deep collusion between Twitter’s previous executive team, the government and media.
  • Perhaps that’s why Musk tweeted today, “The legacy media should worry about its reputation. We have only just begun.”
