Not sure why people keep broadcasting stuff from these guys.

I have a low tolerance for click hungry idiots who are willing to post nonsense just to gather clicks.
They aren't hating on tesla this time. It's actually a pretty good video that touches on the new update features.

I personally like their content (when it's not click baity tesla hate) but to each their own lol

… (when it's not click baity tesla hate) …
Here’s the thing, if they are just posting whatever the heck gets clicks on any given day, then they have no credibility. Maybe they realized posting hateful nonsense was bad for their channel so they shifted to posting more favorable stuff. In neither case is it sincere. I’d rather watch the Now You Know guys. They are goofy, but you know what they say is how they actually feel about the thing and not some new hot take to drive hits one way or the other.

I'm not going to be taking any advice from them or anything. It's entertaining for me.

I like NYK too. A lot actually. (Watching today's video now)

I do find their channel has a pretty big tesla bias though (which is fine). They are my echo chamber because I have that bias.

So I like to watch channels that cover other vehicles and have different views. And TFL does that a lot.

I’m not sure I agree that they have a Tesla bias.

They loved their Rivian and raved about it. Even with the charging issues, they loved it. It was only after it bricked on them repeatedly that they soured on it.

I don’t watch a ton of YouTube on car reviews, including theirs so maybe I miss some of it.

The big thing with TFL is the fact that they were literally making shit up about the Cybertruck to complain about. They lost all credibility in my eyes.

That's fair.

It was a cringey video for sure

TFL is hit and miss. A few months ago Roman basically announced that he is giving up on EVs. Or that the grid isn't ready. Or something like that. Since then he went fully negative toward anything EV related. Not just Tesla. Goldberg, from the CarCast podcast, basically did the same thing at around the same time and it has made the podcast unlistenable at times.

Roman's son (featured in this video) has always been more even. So I still watch some TFL stuff, but I don't watch anything from Roman.

They've voiced some Anti Cybertruck bias before, but I don't hold that against them. All media sources have to juggle and play games. I watch lots of sources of information. I don't always agree with any of them. My main problem with "Now You Know" is their videos are just too damn long for my taste. I have enjoyed some of their content also.

Nah, after the son crashed his model 3 when reversing into a pole he went full fallen fan.

And the cybertruck hate is real

One of my favorites is Cleanerwatt. I know he battery focused but really well done.
