    Clever and, after reading the article, a clearly apt title. The stories of his behavior somehow even managed to be worse than I expected them to be, and I am not really a fan of his. I genuinely do admire what he has managed to accomplish but almost everything else about him, particularly his treatment of employees and anyone who dares to be critical of him, seems rather detestable.

    WIRED did hear from an outside law firm representing Tesla and Musk, which objected to the reporting and how questions were being asked, and suggested that WIRED might be sued.

    That seems to be his answer to everything these days. Someone being critical of you? Threaten to sue them (or call them a "pedo"). :/

      That's kind of why I think Musk dislikes the media; unlike his employees, he's unable to exert absolute control over them, and uses "bad reporting" as a scapegoat for attacking journalists who he sees as slighting him.

      He may be a good entrepreneur, but it regularly appears that he isn't a good person.

    With that justification in mind, Mr. Musk can do no wrong. Reminds me of the mindset that gripped Germany up to the end of World War II.

    it is painful, he sometimes takes the difficult step of firing people who are underperforming and putting the success of the entire companyā€¯ at risk.
