NBC News suspended reporter for criticizing Musk

Ben Collins

NBC News temporarily suspended tech reporter Ben Collins earlier this month from covering Musk on NBC and MSNBC airwaves, but not for the latest issues, reports Maxwell Tani of Semafor.

Tani reports, “According to two sources, the network told Collins earlier this month that his criticism of Musk, which included comments about how the billionaire was purposefully trying to destroy Twitter, was not editorially appropriate. Collins continued to tweet his reporting about Twitter last night about the social network’s ban of journalists.”

Ben Collins covers disinformation, extremism and the internet for NBC News. He previously worked at The Daily Beast and Esquire.
