Re: Elon Musk's chaotic leadership of the microblogging service?
"There shouldn't be a unified "media" coverage in a democratic society, there should be plurality in opinions."
"The media" is, by definition a plural and includes both "traditional" and "new" media, where, in this case "media" is publishing outfits oriented towards news and discourse. Sadly, for some people, that is not obvious because there is no such word as "medias" so we can't say "the medias" when referring to multiple entities, which does make it difficult for some people to understand. As for Musk, as owner of Twitter, he's now a "media baron", one of the many "media" he rails against. He''s joined them, no matter what he may claim about "shaking up" Twitter or "the media" he's now part of it.
Oh, and just for clarity, some people like to use the term MSM or Mainstream media. Well, I think Twitter has been around long enough and is in peoples lives enough that it fully qualifies as part of the "MSM" these days and so adds to the plurality you want :-)
Anyone remember when "alternative comedians" were all the "rage" back in the 80's? The TV interviews they did, trying to be ever more outrageous? Ever seen the likes of Ben Elton in more recent interviews? They grew up and became part of "the establishment", albeit a little changed due to their influence, but not majorly so.
