    The clarification was published. I am sure not all ran the story.

    Yeah Tesla just needs to cooperate, but they also should have the opportunity to clarify/defend misleading/false statements or “journalism” that has jumped the gun and made assumptions.

    Kamban. I don't know if there is anything to cover up, whether it be involuntary manslaughter by the runaway driver, or a system failure by Tesla. I think it's best to do the "we are sorry for the family. We are cooperating with and waiting for a full investigation by such and such regulatory agency" line.

    I am not sure how the SD card or a SSD could have survived that fire.

    Tesla is willing to take a risk about being proven wrong, or has data on their servers that shows that there was no FSD and that AP was not engaged. So it was not a runaway Tesla, but someone actively driving it.

    Audi had the sudden acceleration controversy in 1986 and had such bad publicity inducing a 60 minutes show and 6 drivers suing Audi, that caused Audi sales to plummet and not recover for more than a couple of decades and they lost market share to BMW and Mercedes. People stopped buying Audi. And the NHTSA found that it as all due to driver error, with the driver mistakenly pressing the accelerator instead of the brake. Tesla does not want to get caught in such a mistaken controversy and lose sales by keeping mum. So it has adopted the best strategy is to counter attack and put the blame on the other party.

    It seems they have two options. Be part of the investigation and keep their mouth shut publicly, or opt out of the investigation and let others control the narrative around the crash.

    I'd wager they're taking the best path for their business, as perception is reality.

    I've watched more episodes the past 2 years. Weekend update has gotten a lot better. The commercials and shorts are pretty funny. Here was one from this past year:

    You don't need to watch it live. the Youtube channel has only the clips on it - it is very popular. I use it sometimes to pick and choose which clips to watch. The opening skits are usually top notch.

    SNL is a such a tired old show. I have stopped watching it. It needs a kick in the rear and something fresh

    Elon will certainly draw viewers. I might watch his monologue on Youtube.

    I guess if they bring back Stuart Smalley and do what they did with MJ, that could be a good sketch. Not sure if Al Franken would be invited back.

Not trying to fat shame, but as an owner of the total stock market, his well being correlates with my financial well being. But then apple seems to have done fine without Jobs, as will BRK will without Buffett, BABA without Ma, AMZN without Bezos, and so forth.
    I googled it to make sure I heard it right and there seems to be a lot of strife with the decision to have him host.

    Here is the first hit

    He does speak his mind and is pretty kooky but I am surprised there would be so much controversy. Must have been a slow news day.
