Tesla has experienced a bit of drama in the past two weeks as did shares of the company on the NASDAQ.
But, it's clear that now the company can move on from The New York Times drama. Yesterday, the paper reversed its opinion on the John Broader piece that said the Model S left him stranded.
After Tesla's data deluge it became clear that someone's story wasn't adding up. It was Broder's.
Musk, one not afraid of the limelight, made sure to essentially declare victory, thank the outlets that recreated the drive — fair and square — and also thank the troops who stuck by the company's side. Though, it must be said, the Model S' charge is hampered by cold temperatures.
Now The New York Times has a bit of a crisis on their hands, in my humble opinion. I mean, seriously, if they let a hack like Broder publish a piece that was proven unsubstantiated, what's there to say the rest of their material ISN'T worth more than toliet paper?
The history books are closed on this one BUT whose brand is HURT more? The New York Times or Tesla?
Yesterday, The New York Times reversed its opinion on the review of our Model S and no longer believes that it was an accurate account of what happened. After investigating the facts surrounding the test drive, the Public Editor agreed that John Broder had “problems with precision and judgment," “took casual and imprecise notes” and made “few conclusions that are unassailable.”
