Elon Musk called out “state actors” for manipulating X’s community notes feature on a post he made about American journalist Gonzalo Lira, who has been persecuted and imprisoned by Volodymyr Zelensky’s Ukrainian government. The Biden Regime has refused to intervene on Lira’s behalf, despite him being both a journalist and a US citizen.
Elon Musk asked Joe Biden about the “status” of American Journalist Gonzalo Lira, who is imprisoned in Ukraine, in a post he made to X after Tucker Carlson covered Lira’s story on his X program. Covering Lira’s story is something that Carlson has also done previously, making him perhaps the most prominent voice in news media shining a light on Lira’s persecution, about which the corporate media, which is vehemently pro-Ukraine, has been silent, along with the US government.
In the community notes section of Musk’s post, a fact-checking-style feature that allows X users to add context, pro-Ukraine X users claimed that Lira is not a journalist (he is) and that he’s “actually a Youtuber” who has violated Ukrainian law.
The community notes linked back to several pro-Ukraine US media outlets, which directly parroted Ukrainian government talking points in their stories about Lira’s imprisonment.
After the community notes surfaced, in a subsequent post, Musk called out the “state actors” who he says have “gamed” X’s community notes feature, adding that he’d used his previous post as a “honey pot” to get the alleged state actors to reveal themselves.
As many have noticed, when posts are made on X that are unflattering to Ukraine, the community notes sections and replies are frequently swarmed by pro-Ukraine sock puppet accounts and suspected bots linked to not just the Ukrainian government, but the American government.
“This Note is being gamed by state actors,” Musk declared. “Will be helpful in figuring [out] who they are.”
“Thanks for jumping in the honey post, guys lmao!”
