Yes, looks like I fell for it because it was the WSJ.

Wow, they really burned their credibility on this one.

@patrick, here’s another link. Maybe you can help to screen shot it and share it with everyone here.

Ya know, I wonder if maybe WSJ got played here. They shouldn't allow themselves to get played - they should practice solid journalism and not publish heresay. But...

this could be a clever move from team Elon, or someone who likes Elon but isn't necessarily on his team, or someone who has an interest in hurting WSJ, or someone who has an interested in further degrading trust in MSM etc...

Just make up a BS story and convince a media outlet that its true. Maybe show some compelling evidence that they wont be able to immediately tell is fake, and then maybe play a traditional sales tactic on them: "hurry! you must act now or the window of opportunity will be gone!" as a way to entice them to publish ASAP with less than typical rigor. Then they publish, and the facts will emerge and counter their story and savage their credibility.

A lot of "news" outlets in recent years seems happy to publish crap from rumorville, so feeding them poisonpill rumors as a way to humiliate them and their credibility would be a clever "leak detector dye" in the short term, and maybe even antidote in the long term. Kinda like how ~5yrs ago they published those fake but comical studies into woke academic/scientific journals, who promptly accepted and approved them, proving they accept anything.

Correct. Now let's see if the WSJ fires the person responsible. At least that way we would know the WSJ is serious about not publishing misinformation.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has called out Joe Biden over the Democrat president’s offer to trade “woke” WNBA player Brittney Griner for a Russian war criminal.

As Slay News previously reported, Biden offered to exchange Griner for Viktor Bout, a convicted Russian arms trafficker also known as “Merchant of Death.”

Bout is currently serving a 25-year U.S. prison sentence while Griner is locked up in Russia on drugs charges.

As Russian President Vladimir Putin adds names to the exchange list, many are questioning Biden’s potential trade offer.

Musk responded to a Twitter post showing the picture of an unhappy man with the caption:

“People in the US in jail for weed while the government trades a Russian war criminal to free a woman’s basketball player in jail for weed.”

That is how it works. You cooperate with government corruption and they give you deals. You don't cooperate, no deal.

Yup.

SpaceX won't need the subsidies anyway. They are so far ahead of any competition that it is not even funny. SpaceX are launching 50+ satellites almost every week now using reusable rockets that have already been bought and paid for by previous launches from paying customers. Who can catch this?
