    Email to Mr. Broder......
    "I'm a Model S owner and an engineer. I was surprised at how accurate Tesla's range claims have been. Most electric vehicle providers are not so forthcoming (my Zero for example).
    It is a shame you went for the flatbed shot. It was good press for a short period of time but I feel your career may take a hit for it. It is rare for someone in your position to actually get caught like this. The odds would have been in your favor had it been most any company other than Tesla. The talent that came up with the concept, executed the design and produced the car seems capable of running a company as well.
    Regards,
    Bill Hart"

    Nice. I don't follow him at all. Has he written anything else since the hit piece? I agree this will follow him for a while. And cast doubt on anything he writes in the near future. He's probably just trying to lay low for a while and hope people forget.

    Yes, his latest articles are listed here: John M. Broder - The New York Times
    Unfortunately, I don't know if I can trust the numbers in any of these due to the sloppy reporting in his previous articles.

    Hmm... looks like a brief vacation followed by a lot of "desk reporting" recently.

    I expect his next public scuffle will be between himself and the building maintenance head over his claims about temperature in the office.

    Joyrider,
    I would prefer the argument was over the proper way for him to be pushing the mop.

    Mop-gate 2013: He just posted a scathing review of the mop on the NYT website. He claims it was ineffective during his tests and it didn't hold very much water. The CEO of the mop company had to point out that he was using the wrong end! :biggrin:

    I think he used to cover the oil industry. Probably made many friends there as a result. So I don't think anything he writes that even remotely involves the environment can be trusted. He might very well be a mole.
