Elon Musk has officially been named TIME’s 2021 Person of the Year.

It seems like Elon Musk’s image, from a PR standpoint, has finally hit escape velocity from all of the “questionable” things Musk has done over the last decade.
That’s because the very same man who once faked an $80 billion buyout bid for his own public company – and who recently has sold $10 billion worth of stock in Tesla, which is in the midst of a broad NHTSA investigation over its Autopilot feature which may or may not ever wind up existing as promised (and as paid for) – has just been named Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” for 2021.
“The richest man in the world does not own a house and has recently been selling off his fortune,” Time crows about Musk in their reasoning, talking about “selling off his fortune” like he’s giving away his money instead of cashing out of mysteriously overpriced Tesla stock.
“He tosses satellites into orbit and harnesses the sun; he drives a car he created that uses no gas and barely needs a driver,” Time continues.
Apparently, Time also didn’t catch any recent videos of Teslas on Autopilot. Nor do they seem to understand that Tesla is in the midst of a sprawling 750,000+ vehicle federal investigation into Autopilot by the NHTSA.
