he says he's out out the bottom line in the letter. musk says the company twitter is just not complying with the contractual obligation to give information surrounding. >> fake accounts on the platform. okay. this all comes after the social media company held a call yesterday to discuss the matter to discuss this matter. we now welcome scene that he ensure in. >> i have to wonder, was this ever real deal in musk's mind? >> you know, that is a great question. i know for sure that it was a real deal in the board of directors to twitter's mines because their job is to make sure that the shareholders get the most value that they can. that's literally their jobs. and what elon musk offered 44 billion dollars before. by the way, the market kind of started to tank was what they believe to be the best deal that they could get. they still believe it's the best deal. and now
they have said that they're willing to take him to court to make sure that he pays for this. >> i guess you have to pay a billion dollars if. he loses that, that the deal well out. so there's a billion dollars breakup fee, which is what the to come. you know, he and twitter agreed to when this first started and those break up these existing essentially too. >> force the marriott, if you will. but there's a issue that exists, which is that twitter really has been spending the last few months being trashed by elon musk. he's gone all over twitter at that tweeting about how terrible the company is, how awful the executives are. and now also a claiming in this letter that he sent to the sec and 2. >> it's a twitter that he believes they're lying about critical data about how many users on the platform, which, by the way could be its own legal ball of wax. so it's really kind of rough situation for everybody involved. lot of
drama this is how does this bode for twitter? in the scheme of things? not that that is a key question as well. a lot of the people who are way smarter than me say that this is a catastrophic thing for them. you know, if you want us to spend so long trashing the company. >> so it be having to try and kind of limp along without him would be really rough. at the same time, there are a lot of people at twitter who are really not excited to work for elon musk. so it's kind of a lose lose for everybody which is kind of what social media feels like for everybody anyway. so here we are. >> in in the news business were all over twitter. i know you are. but the majority of the people in this country don't use twitter, instagram and facebook are much more popular. so if you're at home, you see all this brouhaha. why should ordinary people care about this deal? >> i mean, it is something great to eat some popcorn while watching. let me tell
you, i think really what's important to remember is that while twitter has a very small audience compared to facebook and instagram and tiktok, the reality is that its influence on the political world, particularly but also the world's of news is we discussed entertainment. sports are very outsized. and so while we while lot of people may not be following even roll their eyes, very rightly at the idea of the company. the truth is that it has impact and that is why we keep close eye on that. >> you talk about free speech and you know, trump was banned still is banned. you talk about stuff like that. i so. >> yeah, i mean, it's beyond that to write a lot of the political world surrounds twitter when people use twitter for campaigning, it is used for policy announcements. as you pointed out, president trump and all the stuff that happened with them. and by the way, he used the responses he got on twitter. we will use all this and some of the books that came not from people like
bob woodward is that we learned that he the reactions he got on twitter in policy literally world defining policy was happening on twitter. >> so let me go back to the first discussions because that became kind of kind of first and foremost. everybody's talk about this merger and that's what elon musk was saying. and then now he's backing up because the dollars sign. so which one was it >> well, i mean, it certainly he argues that he got involved here because he worried about free expression, any constitutional lawyer will tell you that the interpretation elon musk was giving was quite askew and that we've explained a lot of that. i've seen that. but the bottom line is now he says that, you know, we all should go in the trash bin because it he claims twitter has not been honest about how many users on its platform, which again, is a thing that he's he's claiming that this company is
doing. >> so musk is going to presumably move on either pay a billion dollars fine or not, and he can do that. clearly for people who use twitter and for the politicians who rely on it to get their messages out, etcetera. what do you think is the fallout from all of this? >> i honestly, i mean, this is one of those big shrug og moments. i really don't know what's going to end up from all of this. you know, there's a lot of sense that twitter's influence in the world may have hit its peak, but there's also a very good argument to be made that this is the one stop along a very long of twitter impacting the world. and we're just watching a crazy circus as it happens. >> all right. well, thanks for helping us with the crazy circus in and explaining it to just use a shrug emoji. get us through yeah. and think you so
much and have a good night. that's the insurer seen that. >> appreciate his time. as always. coming up, what would you do for a steph curry autograph? down and give me how many with warriors star made one of his fans do for his john hancock and bay area drivers. finally seeing a little bitfof relief. why prices the hopper? >> starting to debt.
money. this friday, the price of crude oil is dropping, which means that the price of the pump >> is certainly should be following suit. according to aaa, the average price for a gallon of gas here in california is down $0.30 since hitting a record high last month. so here in the bay area, drivers may actually be seeing a decrease of up to $0.40 a gallon despite lower gas prices. drivers say they would still like to see the prices continue to drop. >> i'm not happy as i know couples do too much for in years. i was. so there's i mean, it's crazy when i moved here was like a dollar back them. so no, see this kind stuff now. so it's great for that. >> so here's how the bay area compares to the rest of california. a gallon of gas and santa rosa is $6.14 little more expensive in san francisco. but despite everything he has. >> the price does drop to $6.18 one sure. in oakland. >> it's even lower in san jose
at $6.12. >> still ahead, some say president biden's executive order to protect abortion rights is not moving the needle much at least here in california. but others say it california. but others say it will. they tell us why. after my car accident, california. but others say it will. thi wondered what my case was worth. so i called the barnes firm. i'm rich barnes. is your accident case worth more than insurance offered? call the barnes firm now to find out. you might be surprised. we call it oleyumi. you call it california. our land, our culture, our people once expansive, now whittled down to a small community. only one proposition supports california tribes like ours. while providing hundreds of millions in yearly funding to finally address homelessness in california. vote yes on 27. tax online sports betting and protect tribal sovereignty and help californians that are hurting the most.
v wade are forcefully to call reports now from walnut creek. and that's where anti-abortion rights activists say. >> president biden's executive order will not do much in california, but we'll continue to encourage out of towners to seek abortion services here. >> in the 2 weeks since the u.s. supreme court texans for abortion. they can come from anywhere. pastor james cook has noticed more visitors to the planned parenthood clinic in walnut creek. i've noticed in the last 2 weeks, especially on fridays doubled in value abortions at this clinic are scheduled on fridays. cook says he expected it would get busier here noting governor gavin newsom's commitment to supporting safe access to abortions. the against president biden's executive order easing some restrictions to abortion, medication and travel for those who have to leave their own state to have the procedure. >> but he's grateful the president's order cannot
restore the right to an abortion in states where it is already outlawed. we are a republic. >> it's a rule by the people, not by whether whether you agree with them. and i think everyone has a story. it's not really up to anyone else. decider, judge, passer by rosemary disagrees with pastor cook and other antiabortion activists, weekly demonstrations at the clinic. >> and their attempts to stop women from seeking services committee story before they pull into a driveway and make a decision that they battled and they tortured themselves with you know, they had it. live with that for the rest of their lives and that's between them and god is not between eu and got in a statement praising president biden's executive order and denoun1ing the supreme court's overturning of roe versus wade. planned parenthood, northern california ceo gilda gonzales says her organization will, quote. >> continue to ensure abortion services are available to anyone coming to us from within california.
