It was utterly unsurprising news, and yet it caused a media freakout.

We all knew this was coming from the moment that Twitter accepted Elon Musk’s bid to buy the company. And yet, the world’s richest man had the temerity to say the words out loud.

He wants to allow Donald Trump back on Twitter. Horrors!

Left-wingers denounced Musk as the leader of an evil empire. Right-wingers hailed him for righting a digital wrong. And every news organization on the planet covered it, with the possible exception of Vladimir Putin’s state-controlled outlets.

The near-nuclear reaction is driven by the bitter and emotional divide surrounding the former president, 16 months after the Capitol riot. Part of the country views him as a threat to democracy and shudders at the thought that he could win the White House again. The other part of the country views him as a tenacious fighter for their interests who was screwed out of a second term.

And while Musk, who was an Obama supporter, has gone out of his way to slam the far right as well as the far left, he is being painted by much of the media as an ultra-conservative, Trump-loving nutjob.

Here’s what the head of Tesla and SpaceX said at a Financial Times conference:

“I do think that it was not correct to ban Donald Trump. I think that was a mistake because it alienated a large part of the country and did not ultimately result in Donald Trump not having a voice.”

Since Trump was not exactly silenced, Musk added, “this is why it is morally wrong and flat-out stupid.”

Musk added that when a tweet goes too far, “a temporary suspension is appropriate, but not a permanent ban.”

And you know who agrees with him? Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, who ran the social media app when Trump was banished.

“There are exceptions,” he says, “but generally permanent bans are a failure of ours and don’t work.”
