Is the media against Musk OR Musk against them?

Elon Musk has been in the news recently for all the wrong reasons. His involvement with the Thai cave rescue effort has been a topic of debate, and many interwoven allegations rose over the last week. Was Musk’s commitment just a PR stunt? Did his ‘expensive toy’ render any value to rescue operations? Did he bash the rescuers?

The media is using the attention surrounding Musk to get more clicks. I swear every day there is an article about Tesla/Musk/etc on either Arstechnica, Wired, TheVerge, etc.

Sometimes it's completely anti-musk like a recent article on Wired saying he had the worlds worst fan base. Of course the author didn't take into account that anyone with 22 million twitter followers is going to have some truly awful supporters.

Today it was rather refreshing since at least one news site did an article about ignoring the noise around Musk, and focus on the cars themselves.

I am guessing that big oil is doing everything it can to destroy Tesla. Big oil has lots of $, and also lots of politicians 'on the take'. It is going to be hard to break through this. I have confidence in EM. He is going in the right direction. His innovations will help save the planet. I wish there were more like him.
