    What is Teslarati to do with the father's comment? Teslarati as many outfits is just reporting it..

    Also, for what it's worth, I know the story's author. He's a serious guy, not a clickbait shill.

    P.S. I could be biased, as he has written a couple of articles about my wife's nonprofit, Climate XChange, and its 2015-2016 Carbon Pricing Awareness Raffle.

    It is still 'news', i.e. it's factual. It might seem ridiculous to blame the model S for being too fast, rather than the heavily inebriated driver, but this is America, and people sue, no matter how nuts the case is. I don't blame Teslarati for publishing it on that basis, but we can obviously draw our own conclusions.

    There is a legal concept of "attractive nuisance" that might actually apply. But I doubt that it would overcome her blood alcohol level.

    I was pretty annoyed when Teslarati published the hatchet job on the Mayor of Aberdeen, WA for being Mayor while allowing a Supercharger installation on city property (he owned a few shares of Tesla stock).
