Former CEO of Twitter Jack Dorsey told on Monday evening that he knows that CNN facilitates false news reporting because he noticed the far-left network tried to cause conflict during the Ferguson, Missouri riots back in 2014.
Dorsey made the disclosure in a reaction to a tweet from Miss Universe Iraq 2017 Sarah Abdali Idan who said, “Even @CNN sometimes sells false news. I know this from covering Iraq events in 2019. People need to understand every media is prone to either mistakes or deliberate corruption. Do your investigation before believing what they’re selling you.”
Dorsey replied, “I know this from being on the streets of Ferguson during the protests and watching them try to create conflict and film it causing the protestors to chant ‘f*** CNN’.”
Idan’s tweet arose from an initial observation that was made by Dorsey on the platform when he called out CNN’s Brian Stelter and a writer for The Washington Post on Monday over a tweet that strived at Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
“And you all are selling hope?!”
Dorsey alluded to a tweet from Stelter that affirmed: “Tucker Carlson is always selling the same thing, @pbump says: ‘He’s selling doubt…”‘
The column, from left-wing Washington Post columnist Philip Bump, emphasized an episode of Carlson’s new short-form documentary series called “The End of Men.”
Dorsey replied to the tweet by inquiring in a tweet, “and you all are selling hope?”
In the column, Bump claims that Carlson’s video was a weird combination of homophobia and homoerotica and that Carlson’s final objective was the same: White Americans, particularly older men, were prepared in a progressively aggressive culture and he was offering them the equipment to fight back.
When a reporter acknowledged that Dorsey was “defending” Tucker Carlson. In response to this Dorsey replied that he was not defending a thing but holding up a mirror.
Elizabeth Spiers, who is a leftist appeared on MSNBC, answered back to Dorsey, writing, “They’re selling truth, which is hope-agnostic. It’s supposed to inform you, not make you feel some kind of way.”
Dorsey makes the headlines for criticizing Twitter- Musk team up
Dorsey made news over the weekend when he criticized Twitter’s board of directors as entrepreneur Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, strives to take control of the company.
Dorsey responded to the consequent tweet when he made his comment, “If look into the history of the Twitter board, it’s intriguing as I was a witness on its early beginnings, mired in plots and coups, and particularly amongst Twitter’s founding members. I wish it could be made into a Hollywood thriller one day.”
Dorsey responded that It had consistently been the freakishness of the company.
Dorsey also said “big facts” in response to the following statement from venture capitalist Fred Destin: “What I do know for sure is that this old Silicon Valley proverb is grounded in age-old wisdom that still applies today: Good boards don’t create good companies, but a bad board will kill a company every time.”
When he was asked later if he had been allowed to speak like that publicly given the reality that he was still on the company’s board. Dorsey replied no in reaction to this question.
Twitter has tried to stop Musk from taking over the company by approving a so-called “poison pill” that successfully enables all bondholders, to purchase recently proposed stakes at a discounted price except those who were trying to buy the firm.
If Musk wants to take over the company then he would have to acquire the new shares at a higher price, which could be too much for him to pay.
During a TED Talk last week he revealed that he had another backup if Twitter obstructed his attempt to buy the company.
