Elon Musk is working on establishing “X” as a trusted news platform, promoting it as an “open source news” outlet. He believes that everything important from traditional media is already available on X.
When a follower expressed concerns about false information on X, Musk suggested that users can address it through their own posts and the use of Community Notes. He acknowledged the difference between X and legacy media like CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times,
or The Washington Post, where the narrative is controlled by the media organizations. Musk reaffirmed X’s identity as an open-source news platform, emphasizing that it’s the correct approach, as content from legacy media is readily shared on X.
