When Elon Musk unleashed his latest Twitter tirade against the media on Wednesday, it wasn't long before the obvious comparison was drawn. "Musk continues his slow transformation into a media-baiting (Donald) Trump figure screaming irrationally about fake news," tweeted a reporter for The Verge. It was not the first time the tech billionaire has railed against the media on Twitter - a pastime in which the US president frequently indulges.

This afternoon, the thin-skinned Tesla founder and CEO responded to investigative news nonprofit Reveal‘s reporting on safety issues at Tesla factories by emulating the president: attacking the media—and implying that they’re in the pocket of his competitors. Problem is journos are under constant pressure to get max clicks & earn advertising dollars or get fired. Tricky situation, as Tesla doesn’t advertise, but fossil fuel companies & gas/diesel car companies are among world’s biggest advertisers. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 23, 2018 And then he took it a step further by suggesting a system for rating journalists by assigning them a “credibility score.” (And girlfriend … [Read more...] about What Elon Musk and Donald Trump don’t get about journalism
