    Elon's answer and the headline are completely opposite?

    "I am feeling really good about being able to produce a compelling mass-market car in about three years,"

    I kid, I kid.

    I know that's not the actual error, but based on Tesla timeline history it will be 4, but that's almost 3 :smile:

    To be fair, journalists don't write the headlines.

    I think that's more to the point. Does anyone at USA Today do ANY proofreading? There are mistakes all over the place in that article.

    Whoever wrote that headline (and Bonnie is correct, the headline is not written by the writer of the arrive) was not paying attention or did it on purpose simply to attract attention i.e. clicks.

    As to USA Today, I don't associate that publication with the word "journalism", a word which I attach a certain level of professionalism and standards to.

    I thi k you have a naive view of journalism. It's a business thst makes money from stories. Like book publishing and the movie industry. People are disgusted when they see it manipulated by foreign governments, but here it's long been manipulated by businessmen. The Internet's just made it more obvious that it'll do whatever it takes to make money.
