How do you adjudicate something like this? Does Musk's side need to "prove" the guy is a pedophile or does that guy somehow have to prove he isn't?

IANAL, but I think the paintiff needs to prove real damage as result of the alleged defamatory remark.

Man vs Man, so Musk must prove the other guy is a pedo. Only if a woman spoke these words would the man have to prove his innocence. C'mon, brah, get with the times.

Give me a break. Is he really not entitled to freedom of speech?

Freedom of speech is not freedom from consequence of speech. People used to dual over their honor to the death, this is just a very watered down version of that where property is taken not life.

freedom of speech does not protect you from a defamation suit... it means the government cannot block your right to speak. if you lie and defame someone, you will be sued for damages
