Some Environmentalists Are Being Punked Regarding Tesla

June 1st, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Generally speaking, people don't have time to become experts on a ton of subjects and can't follow the news of many different topics or industries in a careful, deep way. So, I get it, not everyone who is concerned about our climate catastrophe or political challenges is also following Tesla closely and able to cut through the misleading coverage and smear campaigns to get to the deeper stories

A Field Guide To Potential Securities Violations By Tesla’s Foes — In Depth

October 10th, 2018 | by Peter Forman (aka Papafox)

A great deal of attention has been recently placed on the conflict between Elon Musk and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding certain tweets by the CEO of Tesla. What is not clear to many, however, is the extraordinary number of potential securities violations that are happening regularly with regards to Tesla’s stock (NASDAQ: TSLA) that are the work of individuals opposing Tesla’s success. It’s fair to say that a war is presently underway between Tesla and its enemies


276 Tesla Headlines: 116 Negative & 80 Positive — #Pravduh About #Tesla, October Week 1

October 8th, 2018 | by Chanan Bos

Last week included record-shattering production and delivery numbers from Tesla and thus a dramatic shift in the US automotive market. The American-made Model 3 became the 4th highest selling car in the United States and was for the second month in a row the highest grossing car in the United States. It was the only car in the top 7 produced by an American car company. Furthermore, the Model 3 totally demolished the competition in the luxury car market and Tesla as a whole was the top selling luxury vehicle brand in the country. The week also included an SEC lawsuit regarding some of Elon's tweets and a settlement regarding that lawsuit. How did the headlines match up with that news and more? Read on to find out


Tesla’s Enemies Are Perfecting The FUD Machine, & Playing The Media

September 6th, 2018 | by Guest Contributor

Tesla’s vehicles are the three top-selling EVs in the US market. Model S has been consistently outselling every competing large luxury sedan for years, and it appears as if Model 3 will similarly dominate the small sedan segment. The company continues merrily producing 5,000 Model 3s per week, and teardowns by two sets of auto industry experts (Munro & Associates and a group commissioned by German automakers) have concluded that the new EV should deliver a healthy profit margin


The Press Got Bored & “Wised Up” — Tesla News 5 Years Ago vs. Today

September 4th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

I've been curious lately — how has Tesla coverage in the mainstream media evolved over time? Has Tesla coverage always been batshit crazy? Or is that a relatively new thing? Last week, I wrote about dramatically negative press sentiment about Tesla that was prevalent 10 years ago. The company was sure to die any day, according to smart dudes at The Truth About Cars, the New York Times, and most outlets in between


The Billion-Dollar Tesla Hit Piece

August 27th, 2018 | by Peter Forman (aka Papafox)

The New York Times interview of Elon Musk released late in the night of August 16, 2018, clobbered Tesla’s stock price the next day, resulting in a fall of more than $30 a share by the end of Friday’s after-market trading and a single-day transfer of wealth of over a billion dollars from Tesla’s investors to the stock’s short sellers


NYTimes Coverage Of Elon Musk Twitter Outburst Regurgitates What Pissed Him Off In The First Place — #Pravduh

May 27th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

I just published a long piece on why I think Tesla CEO Elon Musk was so wrong in his reactionary, broad-brushed response to certain media coverage. But as a great reminder of what has been raising his blood pressure for months or years, the NYTimes coverage regurgitated the narratives that have pushed Elon over the edge — without putting them in proper context. Ugh. Do you have to do such a poor job responding to his criticisms when we need to convince Sir Elon to keep away from generic media bashing
