Elon Musk wants to name his journalist-rating site after Communist newspaper

Andrew J. Hawkins, a transportation reporter with tech website The Verge, tweeted that Musk was slowly transforming into a media-baiting Trump figure "screaming irrationally about fake news".

Elon Musk, barely a month after his behavior on an earnings call shook investor confidence, hit out on Twitter with a series of combative posts this week, leaving many scratching their heads at best and prompting scrutiny from US labor regulators at worst.

Musk continued along this path, with a dubious tweet about the media's relationship with advertisers from the gas and diesel industry. "Musk didn't seem to mind the media when it was churning out fawning profiles of him", she notes.

LeBron James not concerned about NBA Finals streak being in jeopardy
If the Cavaliers want to win at TD Garden, they will have to get better efforts from their supporting cast in the next two games. James scored 26 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and dished out five assists, but he didn't dominate the game as he normally does.

In his "big media companies" tweet, Musk included a link to an Electrek.Co article titled, "Tesla (TSLA) could rally as media negativity is "increasingly immaterial", says Baird".

The website would be called "Pravda", the Russian word for "truth" and also the name of the official newspaper of the Soviet Union's Communist Party.

Musk ended the Wednesday tweetstorm with a sideswipe against the UAW, which has been trying to organize workers at Tesla's Fremont, California, plant.

Napoli: Carlo Ancelotti appointment signals marked shift for Italian giants
The former Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain coach has been out of work since being sacked by Bayern Munich in September. Carlo Ancelotti has been confirmed as the new manager of Napoli after Maurizio Sarri's departure earlier on Wednesday.

In his tweet, Musk also defended Tesla's safety record, arguing, "Our safety record is 2X better than when plant was UAW & everybody already gets healthcare".

The rant appears to have been prompted by a high volume of negative reports about Tesla of late, which the CEO feels are unfair.

It was this tweet, more than anything else that Musk tweeted, that appeared to have immediate real-world effect, as the threat to remove worker benefits following unionization could be interpreted as a violation of labor law, according to a former National Labor Relations Board chief cited by Bloomberg. In a series of tweets, Musk mocked the media and polled his followers to see what they thought of the Prava idea.
