    I just think it's hyperbole to call the guy a liar if we haven't heard the response and reviewed all the facts. But, hey, it gets you the top of the rec list, right?

      commenting on anything at all until it's gone through three levels of appeals, but if we did that we would have to shut down daily kos.

      This isn't a court of law. People are allowed to evaluate what they see and decide who they trust more. Eventually I imagine this will be worked out in court, given the damage done to Tesla's brand as a result of that article.

        I am fucking tired of being polite about the liars and paranoids who dominate much of our culture's conversations. The notion that Musk faked the car's logs is paranoid. The car's logs clearly show that on numerous points the NYT writer is a liar.

        Look, if we can call "game over" on the liars and paranoids it's game over for the Republicans. And also for some unfortunate people among the Democrats, and among the writers for our few remaining somewhat-liberal newspapers. These aren't people we should coddle, even if they do live in our camp.

        Truth! And be damned if you stand against it.

        If the headline had been, "Tesla CEO Says NYT Writer Lied About Test Drive," it would have been accurate. But instead we get -- IN ALL CAPS NO LESS -- that the NYT writer is a proven LIAR.

        We don't know that he's lying. This is more than likely operator error or some other misunderstanding. For fuck sake, read what the tow truck driver had to say about the incident. The car was dead, and Broder actually seemed distressed about this. I prefer to wait and see what shakes out over the next few days before I publicly accuse someone of lying. But, hey, that's me.

        And please remind me not to rely on your critical thinking skills if we ever find ourselves in a life-and-death situation.
