(Slay News) – Tesla CEO Elon Musk has put Google on notice over the censorship on its YouTube video platform, suggesting that he’s interested in working with Dan Bongino’s free speech rival Rumble instead.
Bongino has an equity stake in Rumble and was one of the first prominent media figures to embrace the YouTube alternative.
Musk responded when British comedian and free speech advocate Russell Brand revealed on Twitter that he was censored for “misinformation” by YouTube for making a small mistake in one of his videos.
Brand said one of his videos contained a small error which he had already issued a correction for.
However, he said that YouTube deleted his video and issued a “strike” for supposedly “spreading misinformation.”
Brand argues that the move proves YouTube is now part of the mainstream media but major outlets have videos filled with false claims that are still live on YouTube.
The comedy star revealed that he is now switching to Rumble due to the censorship on YouTube.
Musk responded, “Good point.”

Bongino jumped at the chance to pitch his company saying:
“Elon, it would be really incredible if you and Rumble got together.
“A force multiplier like no other.”
“I’m a little preoccupied right now.”

Rumble’s founder, Chris Pavlovksi, jumped in:
“Elon, I founded Rumble and forever wanted to work with you.
“Below is from 2010 when I visited SpaceX.
“I was ready 12 years ago, and I’m ready 12 years from now.
“Whenever you’re ready.
“In the meantime, let’s peer our datacenters with Starlink to secure free speech.”
Musk responded, “Maybe worth talking at some point.”

Over the weekend, Musk agreed with a top economist that Biden and the Federal Reserve were on track to crash the economy because they are misreading key economic indicators.
As Slay News reported, Wharton Business School professor Jeremy Siegel said:
“It’s like a pendulum. They were way too easy, as I’ve told you and many others, through 2020, 2021.
“And now, Oh my God, we’re going to be real tough guys until we crush the economy.
“Poor monetary policy would be an understatement.
“Honestly, I think Chairman Powell should offer the American people an apology for such poor monetary policy that he has pursued, and the Fed has pursued, over the past few years.
“Chairman Powell talked quite a bit about JOLTS data — the job opening and labor turnover data. How tight it is.
“Interesting thing, I look back a year ago September, it was exactly as tight as it is today.
“And he never said anything about inflation.
“What’s caused him to change his mind?
“It’s the same data.
“It seems to me wrong for Powell to say we’re going to crush wage increases, we’re going to crush the worker, when that is not the cause of the inflation.
“The cause of the inflation was excessive monetary accommodation for the last two years,” he said.
“Siegel is obviously correct,” Musk said in response to Siegel.
