TV leaves you dark on Tesla’s loan repayment

Via Ramez Naam:

“The news that electric carmaker Tesla Motors has repaid its federal loan early is being ignored by some of the same outlets that tried to make the bankrupt solar company Solyndra the face of the Obama administration’s green initiatives — including ABC, which suggested Tesla wouldn’t be able to repay its loan.”

(Via After Hyping Solyndra, TV News Ignores Tesla’s Loan Repayment | Blog | Media Matters for America.)

Between the negativity aimed at Tesla by mainstream institutions, including politicians trying to stop it from being able to sell cars in some states, these guys are fighting quite a stacked deck.

It’s going to make a hell of a David and Goliath story if they win out.
