Musk lashes out at advertisers leaving X over hate speech

Season 2023 Episode 345 | 5m 46s

Elon Musk is dialing up the pressure on X after cursing advertisers who paused ads on the social media platform. The advertising freeze from major companies like Disney and Apple came after Musk endorsed an antisemitic conspiracy theory on X earlier this month. He denied the accusation of antisemitism and told companies not to advertise. Geoff Bennett discussed more with Bobby Allyn of NPR.
