On Thursday evening, Twitter’s new owner simultaneously suspended several prominent media accounts, including those of CNN reporter Donie O’Sullivan, New York Times reporter Ryan Mac, former Vox journalist Aaron Rupar and Olbermann for “doxxing” him, revealing his “exact real-time location” on the site.
Conservative YouTuber duo The Hodge Twins tweeted, “@keitholbermann just got suspended for telling people to post links to @elonmusk’s jet location. This one is actually pretty funny.”
Conservative author Dinesh D’Souza observed, “It’s no departure from the principle of free speech to cheer the suspensions of Aaron Rupar and Keith Olbermann. Why? Because these rabid advocates of censorship only learn when they get a taste of it themselves. They are like bullies who back off when their own feet get stomped.”
Journalist Jim Treacher wrote, “Suspending Olbermann seems particularly cruel. He’s been fired from every place he’s ever worked, and now a place he didn’t.”
Conservative influencer Collin Rugg mocked, “BREAKING: Radical left ‘reporter’ Keith Olbermann suspended from Twitter. I can hear him screaming from here.”
Journalist Ian Miles Cheong said, “Keith Olbermann can now scream into an empty room.”
