I see a few personalities freaking out, not major networks.  It's a new item for sure, but I don't see that many going ballistic over this.  I imagine the papers have some editorial comment for and against.  

What did Alex Jones ever contribute to useful accurate news information?

Elon Musk has become the most powerful person in the world - CNN

Seems to me like a pretty balanced overview without the histrionics.

Twitter has come a long way from its early free-for-all days. The platform has made big improvements moderating content and suspending accounts that harass other users or peddle misinformation.
But Musk has made clear he believes Twitter has overcorrected.
"I think we want to be very reluctant to delete things and just be very cautious with permanent bans," Musk said earlier this month at a TED conference. He added that "timeouts" are better than full-blown bans.
In taking the company private, Musk will face little resistance to lowering content moderation guardrails that his predecessors put up. Those who've previously run afoul of Twitter's policies could be reinstated. Content that might have once triggered a warning about, say, Covid vaccine misinformation, may once again be fair game.
"If in doubt, let the speech exist," Musk said at the TED conference. "If it's a gray area, I would say, let the tweet exist. But obviously in the case where there's perhaps a lot of controversy, you would not necessarily want to promote that tweet."
Twitter is a fraction of the size of Facebook (FB) or TikTok, but its value lies in its concentration of elite political and media figures who've made it their primary megaphone. Twitter is where news and feuds break out in real time, steering the national conversation on any given day. No other platform has been able to replicate Twitter's messaging utility, and not for lack of trying.
It was Donald Trump's primary communication tool for the years leading up to and throughout his presidency, before Twitter banned him over his role in the January 6 insurrection. Since being banned, Trump has struggled to get his copycat platform, Truth Social, off the ground.
Trump said he would not rejoin Twitter if allowed to. But many believe he ultimately will, given his enormous success at getting his message out on the platform.
Musk will soon be in charge of that decision — a choice that could ultimately influence who becomes the next president of the United States.

But this does not matter

Just because you may think he contributes nothing to accurate news he should get his chance to speak

Free speech has limits, in my view, and in the law.  I would not allow Jones on any platform I controlled, at all, nor anyone else so vile and dangerous.

This is why I think Musk controlled TWTR is going to end up looking slightly different, not massively different.

With Elon Musk’s bid for Twitter, there’s more at stake than freedom of speech - MarketWatch

Another fairly balanced overview from CBS MW.  I think TWTR will be more open, especially early, and then tamp down to some extent as they realize the garbage that starts to get spewed to test the boundaries of propriety that could end up turning off users.

It’s not one personality, it’s most of them at those networks. But then again, that’s precisely WHY they are on those networks. 

As far as Alex Jones goes- dude is a crack pot- probably hasn’t contributed anything in terms of accurate news information but Twitter isn’t a news site. It’s an open social media platform for people to communicate with each other. Dude has a right to say whatever comes into his crazy ass brain. Voltaire says what up.

Hyperbole trash. 

Elon Musk is not even close to being the most powerful person on planet earth. Awful hyperbolic horseshit, but expect nothing less from a garbage tabloid rag like cnn.

What twitter did was much more then just tamping down on garbage

It was way too political in what they allowed and didnt allow

often banning posters who spoke the truth just because it didnt fit their political view

hopefully those days are over at twitter

I think the American public will embrace a social media which truly allows free speech

especially leading up to the mid terms

thats the whole point

Musk will have the power but will honor free speech unlike other social media

CD if you will delete your previous posts we will restore your post ability
