Tesla CEO Musk criticizes media for coverage of his company
Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk criticized the media for its coverage of his automobile company, reported Mark Matousek of Business Insider.
Matousek writes, “Musk began by linking to an Electrek article that featured a note written by Baird analyst Ben Kallo that said ‘increasingly immaterial reports [about Tesla] have dominated news cycles.’
“‘The holier-than-thou hypocrisy of big media companies who lay claim to the truth, but publish only enough to sugarcoat the lie, is why the public no longer respects them,’ Musk wrote.
“Musk’s tweet received a reply from Verge reporter Andrew J. Hawkins, who called Musk a ‘media-baiting Trump figure.’
“‘Musk continues his slow transformation into a media-baiting Trump figure screaming irrationally about fake news. Hope it works out for you dude!’ Hawkins wrote.”
