Tesla CEO Slams Media But Apparently It Helps Them Sell Cars

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has gone on multiple Twitter rants this week criticizing the media and its coverage of his company. He even said he would start a website that would rate the credibility of journalists and their editors. But in the 2017 annual report Tesla filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Tesla credited the media as a significant catalyst for sales. Tesla has expressed the same idea in each of its annual SEC filings dating back to its 2010 initial public offering.
