Gawk-athon continues in stride

Want to be a celebrity? Buy a Tesla. Anything you do becomes newsworthy, even if it’s nothing more than screwing up or getting injured. Look at these headlines. These are big-time, mainstream sites we’re talking about. Would any of these incidents make international headlines if they involved a Chevy Malibu?

WSJ: “Window Plummets From 76th Floor of Shanghai Tower, Injuring Tesla Driver.”
NBC News: “Man Says Tesla Car Started On Its Own, Crashed Into Trailer.”
Yahoo.com: “Five Passengers Survive, Tesla Model S Flies 82 Feet.”

    Worst of all there’s almost never any follow-up: did folks recover ? , did they get a new Tesla ? , …etc.. BTW @ purrpullberra BMW is looking at 2021 for autonomy, still think Tesla can learn from a company over a decade behind them ?
