PALO ALTO, Kalifornia (PNN) - May 25, 2018 - Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and outspoken supporter of Fascist Police States of Amerika President Donald Trump, has had enough of the dishonest mainstream media. So Musk has created an idea to put an end to “fake news” - forever.

After a series of nasty articles slamming his company, Musk says he plans to start a website to score journalists on their credibility. Even the president’s son has chimed in support of Musk’s idea.

“Going to create a site where the public can rate the core truth of any article and track the credibility score over time of each journalist, editor and publication. Thinking of calling it Pravda,” he tweeted Wednesday. Pravda is an old Soviet Russia term meaning truth.

Musk reported that he has seen plenty of biased reporting in the last few months, and is sick of journalists using their articles to promote their politics (instead of the truth).

Trump has expressed during his presidency that the media has given him and his office unfair coverage, only focusing on the negative and never reporting on his positive impact.

“The holier-than-thou hypocrisy of big media companies (that) lay claim to the truth but publish only enough to sugarcoat the lie is why the public no longer respects them,” Musk wrote.

Social media trolls attacked Musk for being just like Trump, but he hit back at the haters by stating, “Anytime anyone criticizes the media, the media shrieks, ‘You’re just like Trump.’”

First son Donald Trump, Jr. used the opportunity to weigh in and declare, “This (is) so true.”

Musk’s attack on mainstream media comes after an article was posted last month stating his company, Tesla, failed to report injuries to make numbers look good; to which Musk responded stating the article was “a calculated disinformation campaign.”

“No, they’re just some rich kids in Berkeley who took their political science professor too seriously,” he tweeted.

The billionaire’s idea to create a public site to assign articles, journalists, editors and publications according to a credibility score could be the first step to making mainstream media less left leaning and more accurate.
