As you may have heard, Twitter/X/whatever suspended a handful of left-leaning (and, notably, Elon Musk-critical) journalists earlier this week. This isn’t the first time this happened (remember the time Musk had people suspended for tweeting about the account that tracked his jet?), and it almost certainly won’t be the last time it happens.
Tomorrow’s newsletter will be written by one of those suspended journalists! The Texas Observer’s Steven Monacelli!
I’ve followed Steven on social media for quite a while and I’m excited to see what he has in store for the newsletter. So, this message is JUST A HEADS UP that tomorrow’s edition of The Present Age will be from Steven, not me (Parker). My (currently dormant) Twitter account has not been suspended.
Free speech "absolutists" do the darndest things!
Like during the early years of US involvement in Afghanistan (or any recent war), "We're so sorry that some people were caught in the bomb blast", so then they just redefine what "non-combatant" means-_-
