Texas Attorney General Opens Investigation After Musk’s Accusations

SOURCE– Ken Paxton, the Texas Attorney General, is opening an investigation into Media Matters for alleged fraudulent activity. This probe comes after Elon Musk, the X CEO (previously known as Twitter), accused the left-wing media watchdog group of media manipulation on X (Twitter).

The Texas Attorney General probe comes after Elon Musk pledged to hit the “watchdog group” with thermonuclear lawsuit when a slew of advertisers such as IBM, Apple, Paramount, Lionsgate, and Disney fled X (Twitter). A report by Media Matters accused X of placing ads next to white nationalist flags, but Elon Musk believes that Media Matters misinterpreted the “real user experience” to mislead the advertisers.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said that he opened the investigation after hearing about the suit against the “radical anti-free speech organization.”
