“Give My Regards to Your Puppet Master”: Elon Musk Takes Aim At Fake News Washington Post

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is clearly no fan of the fake news that plagues our country.

In response to a hit piece launched by Jeff Bezos’ Washington Post, Musk clapped back, telling the paper that he gives his “regards” to their “puppet master,” also known as Jeff Bezos.

The timing of the hit piece is quite ironic considering Musk and Bezos are currently battling for the richest man in the world title but there is one distinct difference. Musk is focused on important worldly and multi-planetary issues while Bezos is worried about lining his pockets and pushing fake news.

Check out what the Daily Caller reported on the situation:

The Post’s piece wondered if Tesla can “run on Autopilot” and declared that “Musk moved to Texas and embraced celebrity.” The article elaborated on “critics” who have concerns that Musk’s schedule and public personality “are beginning to show in the car company he runs.”

The company in question, Tesla, didn’t respond to The Post’s request for comment, the article notes. Musk, however, did – with just one sentence presumably aimed at The Post’s owner, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

After being asked to comment, Musk fired back at the Post while taking aim at Bezos, saying, “Give my regards to your puppet master.”

It’s no secret that Bezos and Musk aren’t very fond of each other considering Bezos always seems to have something disparaging to say about Musk which is quite ironic when you take into account the fact that Bezos has a history of copying Musk’s ideas.

Back in January, Musk shredded Bezos and Amazon after the company complained about Musk’s Starlink program. Bezos is trying to copy Starlink but is years behind.

“It does not serve the public to hamstring Starlink today for an Amazon satellite system that is at best several years away from operation,” Musk said in a tweet after Amazon started complaining.

An Amazon spokesperson responded: “The facts are simple. We designed the Kuiper System to avoid interference with Starlink, and now SpaceX wants to change the design of its system. Those changes not only create a more dangerous environment for collisions in space, but they also increase radio interference for customers. Despite what SpaceX posts on Twitter, it is SpaceX’s proposed changes that would hamstring competition among satellite systems. It is clearly in SpaceX’s interest to smother competition in the cradle if they can, but it is certainly not in the public’s interest.”

CNBC reports:

Starlink is SpaceX’s plan to build an interconnected internet network with about 12,000 satellites, designed to deliver high-speed internet to anywhere on the planet. With more than 1,000 satellites so far in orbit, SpaceX began a public beta program in October. Initial service is priced at $99 a month, in addition to a $499 upfront cost to order the Starlink Kit, which includes a user terminal and Wi-Fi router to connect to the satellites.

Meanwhile, Amazon has been working on its own satellite internet called Project Kuiper. It plans to launch 3,236 internet satellites into low Earth orbit — a system that would compete with Starlink. While Amazon in December passed a critical early hardware milestone for the antennas it needs to connect to the network, it has yet to begin producing or launching its satellites.

Bezos has also copied Musk when it comes to electric cars after he invested in the electric car startup Rivian.
