    Bloomberg has all this money, and they couldn’t figure out how to isolate audio.

    You can tell how disinterested Musk got over time after he found out how bad of a job the interviewer did. Still handled it with dignity though.

    • Alex Presa says:

      @C. Y. Hollander yea your right, I realized that at the end of the interview when the interviewer made the remark ahah, still Musk a champ for doing an interview that late!

    • C. Y. Hollander says:

      My take is different: I believe what you read as disinterest is actually tiredness (at the very end of the video, the interviewer notes that Mr. Musk did this interview at 3:00 AM). When the interviewer thanked him for his time, Mr. Musk responded “You’re most welcome” and, while “You’re welcome” is a social nicety that he would surely have offered in any case, his adding that bit of extra emphasis makes me believe he really had no problem with the job the interviewer did.

      For my part, I feel the interviewer did a mixed job. On the one hand, several of the questions were stale and/or provocative. I assume those are what you object to, and I’d agree with you in disliking those. To the interviewer’s credit, on the other hand, when a question was answered, he generally accepted the answer and moved on, rather than continuing to press on the same point until getting a sound bite that could be featured provocatively out of context. Even if that sounds like little more than the most basic courtesy an interviewer owes to his subject, nowadays, it seems that such courtesy can no longer be taken for granted, sadly. In the context of that lowered bar, this interviewer, if not great, struck me as not terrible, either.

      @Eric B I didn’t expect such quality comedy like, “I heard from a guy, that happens to also be me, that…”

    • nth7273 says:

      @Eric B If you’re boring the interviewee and most of the audience you’re doing a bad job. How did he burst anyone’s bubble?

    • Eric B says:

      @Nathaniel James Its an economical forum and an economical jouranlist. What did you expect, ball fondling for mars dreams?

    • Elijah Smith says:

      Probably because tesla costs too much.

    • Anna L. Vajda says:

      Yeah they just invite him there to get some idea how influential his twitter opinion will be to the stock. The New York times ran a hit piece on Tesla once too hurt his sales and stocks lots of manipulation goes on and he’s just trying to improve the platform not so concerned with stocks he is already the worlds wealthiest man.
