Why Conservatives Can’t Stop Acquiring Media Companies

From a story on politico.com by A.J. Bauer headlined “Why Conservatives Can’t Stop Acquiring Media Companies”:

Elon Musk has officially gone from Twitter’s most notorious troll to its commander in chief. And conservatives are gleeful that the social media platform is now more welcoming of their talking points, with little censorship or oversight.

It’s not just Musk who is creating safe spaces for conservatives online. There are a handful of conservative social media outlets vying to replace Twitter as the de facto digital public sphere including Donald Trump’s Truth Social, Jason Miller’s GETTR, and Gab, long a haven for neo-Nazis. Last month, Ye, better known as Kanye West, announced his agreement to buy Parler, giving the site a much-needed pop cultural boost.
