Elon Musk, CNN spar over ventilator story; Musk surprised network ‘still exists’


Recommended Posts


Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk mocked CNN on Thursday, saying he’s surprised the liberal network still exists after it reported he did not supply ventilators to hospitals treating coronavirus patients -- a claim the billionaire disputed in a series of tweets

“Three weeks after Tesla CEO Elon Musk said he had obtained more than 1,000 ventilators to help California hospitals treating patients infected with the coronavirus, the governor’s office says none of the promised ventilators have been received by hospitals,” CNN’s verified account tweeted.

Musk shot back, responding, “What I find most surprising is that CNN still exists.”

"I told you a few days ago that he was likely to have 1,000 ventilators this week," Newsom said at a press conference, adding the ventilators arrived in Los Angeles and that Musk was working with the hospital association to get the equipment out. "It was a heroic effort."

Musk followed up his CNN-mocking tweet by asking Newsom to “please fix this misunderstanding” and posted an email that a California official sent declaring the ventilators worked great.:snip:
