Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk is ratcheting up his war with the press, accusing media companies (in a tweet) of hypocrisy and of having lost the public's trust. He also vowed to launch a website where users "can rate the core truth of any article" and track the credibility of journalists and publications.
"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," he wrote.
Heh! Of all of the newsworthy people on this earth, Elon Musk is by far my favorite.
(Full disclosure: Yeah, I still dabble in stocks at this late stage of my life and I do own a small number of Tesla shares.)
