Of course, on Tuesday's episode of "The View" its hosts weigh in on the recent discussion and question why conservatives are so enthusiastic about Musk's new deal.

Co-host Sunny Hostin claims Musk will allow users to "say whatever they want" without any repercussions, which will consequently "unleash the trolls." Hostin emphasizes that the majority of Twitter users are straight, white men, meaning Musk's takeover will hurt marginalized groups the most.

I think it's going to be scary to a lot of women because there have been some surveys done, and 38% of women around the world have said that they have been on the receiving end of a lot of abuse on Twitter," Hostin says, referring to findings from The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). "85% of women have said that they have seen the abuse." Hostin also references a 2019 study from the Pew Research Center, which states that "22% of American adults who use Twitter are representative of the broader population."

"It seems to me that it's about free speech of straight, white men," Hostin adds.

Not sure if this is in response to Biden’s silly Disinformation czar, but it is funny.

Doesn't that pretty much sum up the View?

Not a very smart tweet from the Associated Press. You would think of all groups they would understand free speech.
