The media has become a hotbed of liberal bias and condescension towards anyone with opposing viewpoints. The latest example of this came from journalist Mark Maxwell, who referred to fans of Elon Musk as “bootlickers” in a recent tweet.
This derogatory term is used to imply that Musk’s fans are willing to do anything to gain his approval, even if it means compromising their values.

Maxwell’s behavior only further highlights the rampant intolerance and contempt that exists within the mainstream media towards conservatives and those who hold differing opinions. This kind of behavior is unacceptable, and those in the media who engage in it should be held accountable.
Furthermore, the fact that Maxwell openly admitted to not being sober during his online rant is incredibly concerning.
Journalists are supposed to be objective and unbiased in their reporting, and being under the influence of alcohol or drugs while engaging in their work is completely unacceptable.
It’s time for the media to start taking their responsibility seriously and stop engaging in this kind of toxic behavior.
The American people deserve better, and it’s time for journalists like Maxwell to start behaving like professionals instead of using their platforms to spew hatred and intolerance.
