Both are allegedly opposed to the COVID pandemic idea.
According to The New York Times report, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk and Writer Alex Benson have been discussing to start their own publication amidst the pandemic due to their skepticism towards the severity of the COVID 19 outbreak.
Based on The New York Times, the two have considered launching their own news company, and Berenson said that he would bring in reporters. Elon Musk mentioned to TNY that he and Alex Berenson agreed that there’s room for a fiercely independent news company.
Alex Berenson, a former New York Times reporter, has been outspoken about his theories that the response to the coronavirus outbreak has been exaggerated, despite scientific shreds of evidence from medical experts. He pointed out his opinion on his twitter account, saying, “Masks are useless.”
Their Pandemic Skepticism
Berenson wrote and published a booklet called “Unreported Truths about COVID-19 and Lockdowns,” which Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing service initially declined to release due to non-compliance of guidelines. Berenson was, of course, enraged with the rejection.
Elon Musk quickly spoke up regarding Berenson’s book rejection, tweeting at Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos that the situation was “insane.” “Time to break up Amazon,” Musk tweeted. “Monopolies are wrong!”
Amazon said the book was blocked in error and would be reinstated.
Berenson and Musk undeniably have the same views concerning to the coronavirus. They even called an early response to the outbreak as a “panic” and “dumb” and falsely saying that children are “essentially immune” to the virus.
Musk has suggested reopening businesses throughout the country, describing that the stay-at-home orders are “fascist.”
