Here’s another story the mainstream media is ignoring this morning.
The latest round of Twitter files shows how Twitter once gave privileged access to journalists who were willing to parrot one narrative over another.
This round shows that Twitter regularly met with journalists and promoted the accounts of those who were mostly left-leaning. They kept lists of the most Twitter-friendly journalists and offered them special account privileges. They also used the journalists to promote legislation that was friendly to Twitter, essentially using the journalists as lobbyists.
A lot of this special access ended when Elon Musk took over. Now journalists are given Community Notes to fact-check their Tweets just like everyone else and in some instances, it is fact checkers who get fact-checked. That did not happen before.
