Billionaire Elon Musk mocked the media on Monday in response to a tweet about CBS News and joked about mainstream media "bias."

"So you said ‘mainstream media’ is biased? Hmm, will have to fact-check that with mainstream media. Nope, they say everything is cool!" Musk posted to Twitter.

Musk responded to conservative comedian Tim Young, who referenced CBS News' announcement that CBS would be pausing their Twitter activity on Friday. 

"In light of the uncertainty around Twitter and out of an abundance of caution, CBS News is pausing its activity on the social media site as it continues to monitor the platform," CBS News correspondent Jonathan Vigliotti said Friday during "CBS Evening News."

MAJORITY OF REGISTERED VOTERS SAY THE MEDIA IS A ‘THREAT TO DEMOCRACY,’ POLL FINDS 

Musk polled Twitter users on Friday about whether to reinstate former President Donald Trump's Twitter account. Over 15 million accounts voted on the poll and Musk reinstated Trump's account on Saturday. 

"The people have spoken," Musk tweeted on Saturday night. "Trump will be reinstated. Vox Populi, Vox Dei."

Trump said he didn't see any reason for returning to Twitter on Saturday and said he would likely stick to his own social media site, Truth Social.
