Momma Musk had earlier this month turned the heat on Reuters, which carried contrasting stories on Musk's communication regarding job cuts at Tesla. The reports caused a steep drop in the company's stock price. She disclosed that she had reprimanded Reuters a few times and also raised a question as to who is paying the medium to be "anti-Tesla and anti-climate action."
