Tesla Shorts Are Scared, Exposed, & Desperate — Memo To Media: Don’t Be Duped

First of all, let’s be clear — Tesla is such a popular company now that many people in the media have to cover it, or feel inspired to cover it, who know very little about the company, its products, its history, or its finances. Some of those reporters and bloggers may think they got up to speed quickly, got the story straight, and rightfully came in with boxing gloves on to bash the company. The problem is that those people often didn’t get the full story, may have consumed and digested absolutely incorrect information, and may be out of their depths in the general topics they’re briefly covering (manufacturing, finance, cars, technology, etc.). I would say that, by and large, these people aren’t evil — they’ve just been misled.
