Elon Musk Blasts Media's Hypocrisy, Proposes a Website to Track Credibility

Billionaire Elon Musk announced on Twitter Wednesday that he is thinking of starting a website to track the credibility of media outlets and even specific journalists.

Musk wrote that he would create a website where “the public can rate the core truth of any article & track the credibility score over time of each journalist, editor & publication.”

He added that he was thinking of calling it Pravda, which is the Russian word for truth and is the name of a newspaper for the Communist Party of the Russian Federation.

Musk also criticized the media’s “holier-than-thou hypocrisy” and claimed that some in the media lost their credibility a long time ago, arguing that they respond to criticism by comparing critics to Trump.
