Elon Musk to Crusade for Pravda

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

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has drawn flak for reportedly threatening employees who wanted to join the United Auto Workers (UAW) union.

Elon Musk listens at a press conference following the first launch of a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, U.S., February 6, 2018.

Furious over the bad press his electric auto manufacturing plant has received, Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Wednesday night threatened to start a Yelp-like service for people to rate journalists and editors on credibility. But why pay union dues & give up stock options for nothing? Former National Labor Relations Board chair Wilma Liebman said that the tweet could be interpreted differently, however.

"UAW organizers have consistently dismissed the value of Tesla equity as part of our compensation package", the company said. Musk for his part said via Twitter that the two Model 3 vehicles CR had tested were early versions before improvements had been made.

Nipah claims one more life in Kerala, death toll climbs to 13
There is no real treatment but supportive care is given to the affected patients, which means treating the symptoms differently. As per the UT health department, Nipah virus (NiV) is an emerging zoonotic virus (a virus transmitted to humans from animals).

He was apparently referring to effects of the crisis in the USA auto industry in 2008-2010. "Our safety record is 2X better than when the plant was UAW and everybody already gets healthcare", he said in his tweet. "Sometimes I scratch my head".

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

Musk's remarks served as a caption for a retweet of a story about a new report from Baird, in which the investment firm told clients that the negative media coverage that has driven Tesla's stock down for months has just about run out of steam, and with the automaker's production ramp now underway, "shares could appreciate significantly". The electric carmaker is also facing lawsuits accusing it of discriminating against black, gay, and older workers. For example, in recent posts, he claimed that Tesla was going bankrupt (that was posted on April Fools' Day); that he was going to start a candy company; and that he was going to start a new company to drill tunnels to avoid traffic.

A challenge for the union and its organizers has been the high rate of worker turnover at Tesla.
