BREAKING: Missouri AG office investigates allegations that Media Matters created accounts and gamed servers for hit piece targeting X

"My team is looking into this matter."

Katie Daviscourt Seattle WA
On Sunday, Republican Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey announced that his team is investigating left-leaning news organization Media Matters over allegations of criminal and civil violations.

This comes after Elon Musk announced that X-Corp will be launching a "thermonuclear lawsuit" against the company on claims that Media Matters enacted a "fraudulent attack" on X-Corp and in an attempt to "undermine freedom of speech and mislead advertisers."

The specific allegations that Attorney General Bailey's Office is investigating pertain to recent findings that Media Matters allegedly created fake social media accounts to game the X servers in order to create false impressions for its hit piece on Elon Musk. These allegations went viral after they were shared on X by Human Events' Jack Posobiec.

Attorney General Bailey responded to a comment posted by billionaire Elon Musk on X following a plea to US conservative attorneys general to investigate the organization and said: "My team is looking into this matter."

Musk had responded to president of America First Legal Stephen Miller, who commented on Posobiec's findings against Media Matters, saying, "Fraud is both a civil and criminal violation. There are 2 dozen+ conservative state Attorneys General."

Attorney General Bailey has been a champion for freedom of speech and has a significant track record of defending the First Amendment. He has sued the Biden administration over free speech violations in Missouri v Biden and recently filed a joint-amicus brief, along with 18 other US attorneys general, against the gag order imposed on President Trump in his January 6 case.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
