The Washington Post continued its crusade against Tesla boss Elon Musk after claiming “women and people of color suffer the most” after the purchase of Twitter.
On Friday, the publication promoted an article questioning Musk’s content moderation policy after completing its $ 44 billion deal to buy the social media company. The newspaper later shared the article on Saturday through its Twitter account.

“With Elon Musk’s looming takeover, the future of Twitter’s content moderation is uncertain. Experts say women and coloreds suffer the most,” the Washington Post tweeted.
The tweet was mocked by critics, who shouted the newspaper’s insistence that women and minorities would suffer from Musk’s content moderation.
“They are not going to stop,” tweeted The Spectator Contributing Editor Stephen L. Miller.
Grabien founder Tom Elliott wrote “This trick has lost its power.”
Newsbusters CEO Tim Graham wrote, “Prototypical liberal media phrasing: ‘Experts say women and people of color will suffer the most’.”
The Washington Post has been a frequent critic of Musk’s purchase of Twitter since the billionaire’s first 9.2% purchase of shares in the company in early April. As Musk’s takeover of social media became more and more imminent, Washington Post reporters and contributors became more critical of Musk and his policy of free speech.

Most notably, Washington Post columnist Max Boot published a column claiming Musk was “the last person to take over Twitter.”
“Anyone who thinks the problem with social media is too much content moderation, rather than too little, should not own one of the most powerful online platforms,” Boot wrote.
The attacks came despite the Washington Post being bought in the same way in 2013 by Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos.
