Twitter CEO and African-American billionaire Elon Musk yesterday sat down with BBC “journalist” James Clayton for an interview, where the two had a now-viral argument over Twitter’s alleged rise in “hateful content,” as well as Twitter’s COVID “misinformation” policy changes.

During their conversation, Clayton, without any evidence to back himself up, claimed that Musk’s acquisition of the company has resulted in “a rise in hateful content.”

“Content you don’t like or hateful, describe a hateful thing?” Musk asked.

Clayton replied, “I mean you know just content that will elicit a reaction, something I mean something that is slightly racist or slightly sexist, those kinds of things.”

“So you think if something is slightly sexist it should be banned?” Musk retorted. “No, I’m not saying anything,” said Clayton.

 

“I’m curious, I’m trying to understand what you mean by hateful content. I’m asking for specific examples, and you just said that if something is slightly sexist that’s hateful content. Does that mean it should be banned?” said Musk.

“Well you’ve asked me whether my feed, whether it’s got less or more, yes it’s got slightly more,” Clayton claimed, again, without any evidence.

“I’m asking for examples. Can you name one example?” Musk said. “Honestly I honestly–” Clayton began before Musk interjected: “Can you name a single example?”

“I’ll tell you why,” the BBC wordsmith said. “Because I don’t actually use that feed anymore because I don’t particularly like it. Actually, a lot of people are quite similar.”

At this point, the journalist cited his lack of interest in Twitter’s “For You” feed as his reason for being unable to cite a single example of hate speech. Musk, unimpressed, ultimately accused the reporter of lying.

Musk replied, “Wait a second, you said you’ve seen more hateful content, but you can’t name a single example, not even one.”

“I’m not sure I used that feed for the last three or four weeks,” Clayton said. “Then how did you see the hateful content?” said Musk.

“Because I’ve been using Twitter since you’ve taken over for the last six months,” Clayton said. “Okay so then you must of at some point seen hateful content, I’m asking for one example. And you can’t give a single one,” Musk continued.

“And I’m saying I’ve–” Clayton began before Musk again interjected: “They I’m saying you don’t know what you’re talking about.”

“Really!?” Clayton cried. “Yes, because you can’t give a single example of hateful content not even one tweet, and yet you’ve claimed the hateful content was high. That’s a false,” Musk explained.

“No,” replied Clayton. “You just lied,” Musk said.

Eventually, Clayton abruptly left the interview, leaving Musk alone to field questions from the audience.

    All the liberal journalists are that way. He was given orders to try to ambush Elon and it did not work. Everyone should treat the corporate propaganda machine with distain. They deserve nothing better because they never earned respect.

    He didn’t quit. He moved on to another topic. The headline makes it sound like the reporter stopped the interview. Lying to people with a misleading byline is the quickest way to having zero credibibility.
