I just got done writing the following in a post:
I'm starting to wonder if mainstream media is actively trying to paint Elon Musk as some kind of loose cannon, to drive down the stock price of Tesla and/or pave the way for someone else to takeover the company. I don't know if it's a buy or not, but the number of trending articles portraying him smoking (legal!) weed on the podcast as if it's proof that he's unhinged, and some kind of death blow for the company, is highly suspicious.
I totally agree with you on the "news."
