Please note: in today’s show we reported that Elon Musk had spoken out against further governmental assistance programs but had then clarified to state that any further funds should go directly to citizens through UBI, since funds have gone to special interest groups rather than citizens in the past.
We failed to mention the latter part of this – but since the story focused on business assistance — something Tesla partook in – we felt it was not pertinent. On further reflections, we have come to understand that was the wrong choice.
We are sorry for the the confusion.
