The Washington Post continued its crusade against Tesla CEO Elon Musk after claiming that “women and people of color could suffer the most” after he bought Twitter.
On Friday, the publication promoted an article questioning Musk’s policy of moderating content after finalizing his $ 44 billion contract to buy the social media company. The paper later shared the article on Saturday via its Twitter account.

“With the takeover of Elon Musk looming, the future of moderating content on Twitter is uncertain. Experts say women and people of color could suffer the most,” the Washington Post wrote on Twitter.
Critics ridiculed the tweet, which called the paper’s insistence that women and minorities would suffer because of Musk’s moderation of the content.
“It won’t stop,” The Spectator editor Stephen L. Miller tweeted.
Grabien founder Tom Elliott wrote “This trick has lost its power.”
Newsbusters executive editor Tim Graham wrote: “Liberal media prototype: ‘Experts say women and people of color will suffer the most.’
The Washington Post has been a frequent critic of Musk’s Twitter purchase since the billionaire’s first 9.2% stake in the company in early April. As Musk’s takeover of the social network became increasingly inevitable, journalists and contributors to the Washington Post became more critical of Musk and his policy of free speech.

Most importantly, Washington Post columnist Max Boot published a column claiming that Musk should be “the last person to take to Twitter.”
“Anyone who thinks the problem with social media is too much content moderation, not too little, shouldn’t own one of the most powerful platforms on the internet,” Boot wrote.
The attacks happened despite the 2013 Washington Post similarly being bought by Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos.
