Musking the Media By Peter Ewer

     Whoooaaah, first Trump and now our friend with the cars and spaceships, I think, Elon Musk, unloading on the establishment media, right along Trumpesque  lines, of “false news.” Thus, for the reader’s amusement, since we all know that the mainstream media is deceit with a purpose, here are Elon’s delightful Tweets. They are hard hitting and to the point, or should I say, “On Target.”
