Elon Follows Through With ‘Thermonuclear Lawsuit’ Against Media Matters, TX AG Paxton Taking Action Too

By Nick Arama 


As my colleague Bonchie reported Saturday, Elon Musk said that he would be filing a “thermonuclear lawsuit” against Media Matters alleging that they defamed the X platform after they published a report that said ads for major brands appeared next to posts praising Nazism.

That resulted in major companies including IBM and Comcast pulling ads from the platform.

But now Musk has followed through, filing the lawsuit on Monday, claiming that Media Matters had falsely portrayed X as a risky, unsafe platform for advertisers and that they had been targeting X for some time.

The suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas Fort Worth Division, alleges Media Matters’ actions were “manipulative and deceptive.”
