At least they were able to figure out what your last was.
Real hard hitting reporting.
Not even one of these clowns bothered to contact me.

Anyone want to count the number of errors in here?
This is why media stories really are #FakeNews

Literally every time a DD story comes up in the media there are boatloads of errors.

It's amazing that every single time anyone reads an article about a topic that they have more than a passing knowledge of, they find glaring mistakes, yet, when we read an article about something we don't know about, we accept everything as 100% true.

These reporters don't even earn minimum wage. What do you expect from them? He/she is likely a 21yo millennial with 150k student debt working out of a dingy basement in Brooklyn. He has to cover 25 stories per shift.

The same rule applies to all levels of reporting in all forms of media. Think about how you want to bang your head against the wall reading *any* piece about Israel. Then we read something about climate change and say, "sounds right".

Waiting for Tesla to start leasing program on M3, which may happen in Q1 19.
Did you take out a loan or pay in full for you car ?

You'll lose out on the $7,500. Take a loan out and sell it in a few years.

Since the Tesla market is so unpredicatble I'm not sure anyone will write a lease on it, since it's residual value will be influenced by the market value of a new Tesla in x number of years.

It would probably be financed by Tesla's own finance arm.

Wow, 14 is pretty good, I guess you'll have to see how many of those actually end up keeping the car though.
