Yes, the title of this post is satire. Of course, Elon Musk had nothing to do with the recent Porsche Taycan EV battery fire, but it illustrates a problem we have in this country with media coverage. Unless a story is going to drive more ad revenue, it falls to the side. Had the vehicle involved in the fire been a Tesla, it would have been national news, the stock price would have tumbled, and the sky would start to fall. Instead, we end up talking about an off-handed and completely unrelated tweet about Bill Gates making it on the news. It’s unfortunate, and I explain why it happens in the video.
