For Elon Musk's Plan To Check Press Credibility, A Flood Of Support

The electric car tycoon hit back at coverage of a crash involving one of his vehicles

In the wake of the series of "fake news", Musk found it "extremely" important to stand against the media, who roll it out, according to the South African-born American business magnate.

Musk has promised a fix in the next few days. "It is how they define themselves". "Musk didn't seem to mind the media when it was churning out fawning profiles of him", she notes.

The United Auto Workers is asking the federal labor board to investigate Tesla Inc. over a tweet by Elon Musk.

In said meltdown, he went after the press, suggesting he might create a system to rate the media and name the site Pravda-which was the official newspaper of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, and is today run by the Communist Party of the Russian Federation.

But plans to bring back Pravda are not a one-time bluff; work on such a service reportedly dates back to October 2017, and not to Musk's latest friction with financial and automotive media outlets.

Two days after the crash, the Tempe Police Department said that it did not appear Uber was at fault in the fatal crash . The vast majority of vehicle tests haven't been done on public roads, and the cars are still learning how to drive.

Tesla shares ended the day down 0.4 percent, at $277.85. "Could do so tmrw if they wanted. But why pay union dues & give up stock options for nothing?" read Musk's tweet that the UAW complaint is based on. "Our safety record is 2X better than when plant was UAW & everybody already gets healthcare".

The 46-year-old billionaire has been particularly sensitive about negative coverage of recent Tesla crashes that have made headlines, including a fiery March wreck that saw the driver of a Model X die after hitting a concrete median while in Autopilot mode.

"For some reason, this is the best I've felt in a while". His follow up tweet was a poll, in which he asked the public if they thought his idea is good - at the time of writing, it has received nearly 500,000 votes, with 87% of respondents endorsing the Tesla CEO's view. Is it just another Musk prank, or is he actually serious about the idea? "You lost your credibility a long time ago".
