This is real.
On a recent episode of The Beat with Ari Melber, the MSNBC host shared his concern that, with Elon Musk running Twitter, “you could secretly ban one party’s candidate” —kind of like what already happened with former President Donald Trump.
Melber doesn’t see the irony.
“You could secretly ban one party’s candidate…secretly turn down the reach of their stuff and turn up the reach of something else and the rest of us might not even find out about it until AFTER the election,” Melber says.

Hey, @AriMelber, serious question: I’ve been looking for a new rock to live under and was wondering which one you use.
