Elon Musk now wants to rate journalists, editors

Elon Musk now wants to rate journalists, editors

Musk also criticized the media's "holier-than-thou hypocrisy" and claimed that some in the media lost their credibility a long time ago, arguing that they respond to criticism by comparing critics to Trump.

"For some reason, this is the best I've felt in a while", Musk, who has built a showman reputation partly through his frank exchanges on social media, tweeted early Thursday, after his comments set off a storm of responses.

'Tricky situation, as Tesla doesn't advertise, but fossil fuel companies & gas/diesel auto companies are among world's biggest advertisers'.

Musk's tweets were light on details, but suggested that the site would "restore the credibility of the media" by allowing the public to vote on how objective or accurate they feel publications and journalists are.

A tweet from journalist Mark Harris linked to a filing that certified Pravda Corp.as a foreign corporation in October.

Pravda or "Truth" in Russian was also the name of the official newspaper of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.

The outlet noted that the California secretary of state's website shows a Pravda Corp. was registered in October in DE and used the same filing details as two other Musk start-ups.

The CEO criticised analysts on Tesla's most recent earnings call for asking "bonehead" questions and proceeded to take 23 minutes worth of questions from a 25-year-old owner of a millennial-focused YouTube channel.

Musk ended the Wednesday tweetstorm with a sideswipe against the UAW, which has been trying to organize workers at Tesla's Fremont, California, plant. "Could do so tmrw if they wanted".

Elon Musk: "Why pay union dues and give up stock options for nothing?"

Recently Consumer Reports (CR) tested the Tesla Model 3 and found that the auto had braking distances that were much longer than other vehicles in its class.

On a larger scale, Musk's latest tweetstorm is the latest in a pattern of increasingly erratic behavior on Twitter. Is it just another Musk prank, or is he actually serious about the idea?

The electric-car maker has been fighting negative press for several months over production bottlenecks for its Model 3 sedan, crashes involving its cars and doubts raised by Wall Street over its cash position.
