Pompous EU Commissioner believes he owns the truth and gives Elon Musk 24 Hours to Comply with His Truth.
The EU has pompous misinformation truthers like in the US. One of these monsters is giving Elon Musk 24 Hours to comply with his version of the truth related to the Hamas attack on Israel.
FOX Business reports:
A European commissioner has given Elon Musk, the owner of the X social media platform, a 24-hour ultimatum to confront misinformation on the platform concerning the Israel-Hamas war, citing a potential breach of EU law.
European Commissioner for Internal Market Thierry Breton warned misinformation flooding the platform could be in violation of the bloc’s Digital Services Act amid recent changes from the platform allowing sensitive and graphic media.
“Following the terrorist attacks carried out by Hamas against Israel, we have indications that your platform is being used to disseminate illegal content and disinformation in the EU,” Breton wrote in an open letter to Musk. “Let me remind you that the Digital Services Act sets very precise obligations regarding content moderation.”
He added, “I urge you to ensure a prompt, accurate and complete response to this request within the next 24 hours. We will include your answer in our assessment file on your compliance with the DSA. I remind you that following the opening of a potential investigation and a finding of non-compliance, penalties can be imposed.”
The letter continued, “Second, when you receive notices of illegal content in the EU, you must be timely, diligent and objective in taking action and removing the relevant content when warranted. We have, from qualified sources, reports about potentially illegal content circulating on your service despite flags from relevant authorities.
Here is the tweet to Musk from the EU and Musk’s request to list tweets that did not work
Our policy is that everything is open source and transparent, an approach that I know the EU supports.
Please list the violations you allude to on , so that that the public can see them.
