It’s a portrait of a man who’s gone past fraying at the edges. In an hour-long interview with the New York Times, Tesla CEO Elon Musk appears as a man threatening to come apart — and it’s not a joyous sight. Despite the frustration stemming from Musk’s actions and pronouncements, and the aggravation born of his cheerleading, conspiracy theorizing fan base, it’s difficult to watch a man’s ambition and drive spiral into self-destruction. Musk teared up frequently during the interview, the NYT claims. Working up to 120 hours a week and sometimes spending three or four days inside the automaker’s Fremont, California assembly plant, Musk claims he doesn’t sleep much, even with help from the now-controversial sleep aid Ambien. Instead, the drug provides the impulse for late-night tweetstorms that immerse the CEO in hot water and increase the polarization of this fans and detractors. Recent bizarre actions like publicly mulling a … [Read more...] about Man on the Edge: New York Times Interview Shows Elon Musk at His Lowest

Gas-guzzling RV sales are up, thanks to an increasing number of retirees and cheap gas. I’ll admit that living in an RV never made much sense to me. And now, thanks to a recent New York Times story about RV communities, I’m even more bewildered. Apparently, more and more baby boomers have been choosing to move themselves into luxury RVs and then parking those luxury RVs in high-end, gated, motor home communities. Here’s how the Times describes the Las Vegas Motorcoach Resort: The resort has a terra-cotta-roofed clubhouse, five pools, two hot tubs, a fitness center, tennis courts, twice-weekly water aerobics classes and a nine-hole putting course — all at the center of a maze of 407 lots where owners and renters park R.V.s that can cost more than $2 million. Exclusivity has its perks. Refuges like the Las Vegas Motorcoach Resort offer owners a superior experience to go along with their fancier vehicles. The rules are strict: Renters’ coaches are carefully … [Read more...] about This New York Times Story About Gated RV Communities Is Blowing My Damn Mind
Dean Baquet, executive editor of the New York Times, oversees the paper’s morning meeting in a scene from Showtime’s “The Fourth Estate.” (Showtime) President Trump’s election set off a mad scramble among high-profile journalists, book authors and filmmakers who compete to tell the story of American history and experience. Overnight, they all needed an exclusive yet meaningful vantage point. Some, like author Michael Wolff, looked for a way to slither into a ringside seat. Others headed for the great flyover to spend time with the forgotten citizens who connect to the new president’s bombast. Liz Garbus, one of the finest documentary filmmakers working today, followed another instinct altogether, asking to embed a film crew in the white hot center of the most elite and most maligned spot in mainstream media: the newsroom of the New York Times. The company’s executives agreed to give Garbus broad access, but mostly steered her away from their … [Read more...] about It’s exhausting being a reporter in the Trump era.
