The Tesla boss hammers another nail into dying CNN’s coffin.
CNN lied yesterday that Musks’ 1,000 ventilators failed to be delivered to California. In response, Elon Musk showed the receipts.
But instead of retracting and quickly apologizing, CNN chose to double down.
With his 33,100,100 Twitter followers globally, Musk personally has a wider audience reach than CNN whose viewership is only 1,800,000 and fast dwindling.

CNN is a lying broadcaster that used to have a captive audience in airport lounges as well as provided background noise in gyms. That was once upon a time. Well now no more, given the drastic reduction in air traffic coupled with slowdown of ads in all media across the board.
In January this year, CNN agreed to pay an undisclosed amount (rumored to be US$25 million) to Nicholas Sandmann to settle a lawsuit filed by the Covington Catholic high school student — obviously a tacit admission of guilt because the disreputable cable network had indeed defamed the MAGA-hat wearing teenager.
“What I find most surprising is that CNN still exists,” as Elon Musk had tweeted.
Before the coronavirus pandemic, CNN was already laying off its reporters. Post Covid-19, the world mediascape would do well to be disinfected of CNN (and the New York Times too).
