Elon Musk recently appeared on CNBC and schooled a reporter who questioned some the things he tweets about.
The reporter accused Musk of sharing conspiracy theories, and Musk reminded him that plenty of so-called conspiracy theories end up being true, such as the Hunter Brandon laptop.
Musk also correctly pointed out that the suppression of the Hunter Brandon laptop story was election interference.

Elon Musk: Suppression of Hunter Brandon Laptop Story Is ‘Election Interference’
Twitter and Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Tuesday on CNBC’s “Last Call” that the suppression of the Hunter Brandon laptop story was “election interference.”
Host David Faber said, “Let’s talk a bit about your tweets. It comes up a lot, even today, it came up. You know, in anticipation of this meeting. You do some tweets that seem to be, or at least give support to, what some call conspiracy theories.”
Musk said, “Well, yes, but I mean, honestly, you know, some of these conspiracy theories have turned out to be true.”
Faber said, “Which ones?”
Musk said, “Well, like the Hunter Brandon laptop.”
Faber said, “That’s true.”
Musk said, “So, you know, that was a pretty big deal. There was Twitter, and others engaged in an act of suppression of information that was relevant to the public. That’s a terrible thing that happened. That’s election interference.”
