Elon Musk: ‘People Who Get News from Legacy TV Live in a Fake Alternate Reality’

X boss Elon Musk has taken a major swipe at establishment news outlets and warned that people who rely on the corporate media as a source of information are being lied to.

In recent years, the corporate media, particularly legacy TV networks, has lost its icy grip around the throats of the American people as citizens increasingly question agenda-driven narratives.

In response, the public has been shifting to independent media outlets, such as Slay News, to get real, uncompromised reporting on current events.

After all, the news is supposed to inform you, not persuade you.

Musk, whose social media platform X has become a hub for free speech and independent voices, is raising the alarm about the corporate media serves as propaganda to promote Democrat policies.

On Thursday, the Biden-Harris re-election campaign posted a clip to X from ABC News’s “Good Morning America.”

The clip had aired ahead of Presidents Donald Trump and Joe Biden’s dueling border trips

The ABC News reporter said the tanked bipartisan border deal included some of the “toughest reforms in decades” but “Trump pressured Republicans to kill that bill to deny President Biden a political win.”

Musk didn’t agree and responded to the Biden campaign’s social media post with a scathing message.

People who get their news from legacy TV live in a fake alternate reality,” Musk posted on X while sharing the clip with his ~180 million followers.

“Those so-called ‘toughest reforms’ would have made invasion-level migration permanent.

“That diabolical ‘Border Bill’ deserved to die and shame on those who supported it.”

At the core of the border package was an “emergency border authority” to mandate Title 42-style expulsions of migrants when migration levels exceed 5,000 a day over a seven-day rolling average.

Rather than stem the flow of illegal border crossings, the bill seeks to speed up the process of settling migrants in the United States.

It also would have narrowed asylum eligibility while expediting the process from years to months.

To speed up the process, it would provide immediate work permits for “asylum seekers” and fund a massive increase in staffing at the border and more immigration judges.

In addition, it included increased numbers of green cards and extra funding for NGOs and cities receiving migrants.

However, the “border” bill is also packed with billions of dollars in funding for endless foreign wars.

But while the Biden administration and negotiators talked the bill up as a “tough but fair” way to “tackle” the border crisis, Republicans in the House immediately declared it a non-starter.

Conservative opposition in the Senate has now quickly stacked up.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre knocked Trump and Republicans over the bill on Thursday.

President Biden “was able to move the ball forward in the Senate to get a bipartisan negotiation on the border security deal,” she claimed.

“That was rejected, obviously, by Republicans because of the last president and President Trump, to be exact,” Jean-Pierre falsely alleged.

The White House billed the Senate “border” bill as “the toughest and fairest set of reforms to secure the border in decades.”

However, more than 20 Republican lawmakers in the upper chamber argued the provisions would not sufficiently reduce the historic number of illegal migrant crossings.

Instead, they warn that it would normalize record-high levels of illegal immigration.

It appears Musk is on the same page.
