I have watched David Fabers interviews for decades now on CNBC, he doesnt do them all the time but has specials like this from time to time it seems a couple times a year.
I wasnt happy with his softball interview with Exxon in my opinion but he normally is gracious with guest and I feel he was with Elon but Musk seem to pause for almost a full minute and visibly looked like he was going to get up and walkout.
There were many headlines and bizarre answers from a person who seems to be under a lot of stress running multiple companies.
This link above covers one of the odd answers. If you look at his background raised in apartheid it could give some insight about why he feels so strong about censorship and no matter how many advertisers leave he would have free speech to say something like this "from The Princess Bride, telling his enemies that they can “offer me money, offer me power,” but I “don’t care.”
The link above should take you to a story of how he grew up.
The shutting down of their suggested search term function for returning animal cruelty results to users shows there are real issues with the platform that may have not been thought all the way through but with how Elon answered this may just be the way the platform will be moving forward. He is opposed to some forms of information like his jets flights being published that account has been taken down so selective censorship it seems is ok.
If your interested in more on Musk heres a few other post.
I have previously questioned the thinking about how he was looking at the situation like Facebooks moto move fast break things, but in the CNBC interview he did say they fired people as a cost cut measure before knowing what they did and if they arent mad at the company he plans to hire back who is needed. I have to say when a CEO admits they handled something wrong that I at least can understand and I am glad to see a new CEO come in and its from CNBC the head of their ads so makes sense but if he is going to put conspiracy theories next to their ads and have who knows what animal cruelty next to it she cant work with that. I do wonder if she will take the clip thats says if I lose money so what and send it to him when he ask about profits while he continues to tweet.
