Tech guru Elon Musk took to twitter to air his grievance.
Musk blamed current journalism problems on the journalists themselves. Elon came up with a possible solution to the problem ; a website that allows journalists to be rated like yelp.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk aired his frustration with the media on Wednesday, issuing a series of tweets calling out the “hypocrisy of big media companies” before floating the idea of starting a website which would allow the public to rate journalists.
“The holier-than-thou hypocrisy of big media companies who lay claim to the truth, but publish only enough to sugarcoat the lie, is why the public no longer respects them,” Musk started out by tweeting.
Musk went on to claim that “journos are under constant pressure to get max clicks & earn advertising dollars or get fired.”
“Tricky situation, as Tesla doesn’t advertise, but fossil fuel companies & gas/diesel car companies are among world’s biggest advertisers,” he said.
Musk went on to talk about a site, possibly called Pravda, which would serve as a way to rate journalists, and track their credibility. Pravda was the name of a former Communist newspaper from the Soviet Union.
