That's funny. Do you have a vehicle that can clean that corner by wiper?https://www.businessinsider.com/new...k-windshield-wiper-leaves-window-dirty-2023-3
I guess I'll just go ahead and cancel my pre-order then.
Folks even here on this forum would swear to you Tesla gets a fair shake in the media.Don't read the article. It'll just make you angry and we'll all start venting about how the media treat Tesla. And how this article is just... wrong.

Media bias seems to follow the money quite well.I'll admit that was me. (past tense). I was conflating a different complaint people have with "main stream media" with the complaint that the media treats Tesla differently.
They do treat Tesla differently, and as pointed out, most likely because Tesla doesn't advertise with them. I would say the problem isn't the media, it's that [REDACTED to keep from getting political].
It's almost a chicken or the egg thing, but when you read the comments on most articles their audience jumps onto the bandwagon. So, it makes you wonder if they are merely pandering to their audience. Sort of the tail wagging the dog. TFL has had pro EV videos and when you read the comments they get hammered.Media bias seems to follow the money quite well.
And people have started to catch on so they start calling journalists out on it. And of course people don’t like to be called biased even when they pretty clearly are, so they get defensive.
The same happens on the other side. Tesla-friendly personalities know where their bread is buttered as well. The big difference being the Tesla friendly sources don’t pretend they are non-biased while doing it.
