Elon Musk's Twitter Tirade Is the Dumbest Thing on Wall Street

Musk is at it again. This time, journalists are in the crosshairs.

Another week, another perplexing Twitter tirade from Tesla Inc. (TSLA) - Get Tesla Inc Report CEO Elon Musk.

In a series of tweets into the evening hours Wednesday, Musk proposed the creation of a website he would call "Pravda," a media credibility ranking site that would allow the public to score journalists for their truthfulness.

Musk then crusaded for the democratic need of a free and fair press while also criticizing modern day "media." He scolded reporters for writing specific points-of-views for specific audiences, then flat out said the media should ask for support because they have a platform.

I've written extensively about Musk and Tesla, but I have never once lied. Sure, I've included my opinion at times, but only in this column -- which is an opinion column.

In yet another Twitter rant, Elon Musk has proven himself a man unhinged. If you think these tweets won't come back to bite him someday, you're the dumbest on Wall Street.
