Does the media backlash to Musk's idea mean it's disruptive? (quod.us)

The cynical view would be that Musk is another Silicon Valley billionaire who wants to use his money to bully media outlets that publish reports about him and his company that he doesn't like.

I can see why journalists might be concerned about that, but I think whatever he creates should be judged for what it is - it's possible he has good intentions.

It's possible--but his public actions suggest he doesn't have an unbiased view.

I think, it is a nice idea and it's necessary due to increase of fake news, or paid news. Also I don't think it's the only solution but it may be the simplest way to counter.
