You missed something. If you lie about someone and it harms them you are liable. Opinions about someone is different.

Oh they just reposted pictures of the posts and the advertising linked.  X quickly fixed it.  Maybe you missed it.  That lawsuit will not go anywhere...

I don’t follow it closely at all and ya, don’t know the details. But I doubt they just reposted his tweet, whatever it was.

If they did, I imagine it was like that time when the MSM posted a picture of Trump beside a picture of a drowned dad and his son washed up on the shore of a river…. They just posted a picture!

No they didn't. They didn't just post his tweet.....

"As X owner Elon Musk continues his descent into white nationalist and antisemitic conspiracy theories, his social media platform has been placing ads for major brands like Apple, Bravo (NBCUniversal), IBM, Oracle, and Xfinity (Comcast) next to content that touts Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party. The company’s placements come after CEO Linda Yaccarino claimed that brands are “protected from the risk of being next to” toxic posts on the platform."

Maybe they had ads shown next to our parliament celebrating a NAZI war hero?

No because I also don’t really care about the outcome. His karma is his alone. But it is liable.

If it just said ads are shown next to content that seems to endorse NAZIS like our parliament giving one a standing ovation, then it would have been at least possibly truthful. Although I think you have to be into that kinda stuff to see it since I never have. To say he endorses it requires proof.

The definition of “endorse” is “declare one's public approval or support of. "the report was endorsed by the college.”

Unless of course he has actually endorsed it. I don’t actually know. I’m assuming the media is lying because that is a safe assumption.

I think he has stated that he shouldn't have agreed and reposted...

Yeah and people in the media, politics, sports, entertainment say foolish things all the time, unfortunately there is a price to pay for that, sometimes it's valid and sometimes it isn't.  Should advertisers on a platform have say in what their advertising pops up on with respect to shows and posts.  I'm sure they do.  If you paid for advertising and it popped up on posts that are pro-Trudeau or Fauci, you might care about that if you were a huge corporation who cares about what your beliefs are and were alerted to it by True North.

Censorship is not the answer. I have never seen a single pro NAZI thing on Twitter except for our Parliament giving one a standing ovation. This is obviously blown out of proportion. The only time someone has actually seen these things together is when Media Matters photoshopped those screen shots for their Musk Derangement Syndrome hit piece.

Either have I really, but I don't look for it.  X fixed the issue within a day I believe, but there is a lot of Nazi stuff on there.  Some groups tried to recreate what Media Matters found and they couldn't.  They followed 8-10 pro-Nazi groups and didn't get ads from the big boys, then they follow another 20 or so and still nothing.  It's out there though, I guess cause you've not seen it it isn't?

Just discussing the validity of Media Matters reporting on X accidently having ads accompany pro-nazi posts... Oh and Elon making silly tweets...

I don't search that crap..  Pro-X folks did the tests trying to recreate.  They said they followed all those accounts.
