Charley Grant accuses Elon Musk of Market Manipulation for accepting award

Wall Street Journal “columnist” Charley Grant was very upset this evening as Tesla accepted the Golden Steering Wheel Award in Berlin.

You can’t blame him — his Dad’s friend Jim Chanos, who runs a fund dedicated to short selling, has been shorting Tesla and SolarCity for years. If this keeps up, he may have to share a bunk with Chanos on their next vacation.

“Just in time for the last hour of trading!” Grant declares, implying that Tesla set the time of the German award ceremony organized by Axel Springer owned Auto Bild.

Charley is a funny guy and I enjoy reading his columns. But like most of his frequent accusations against Tesla, this one makes no sense. It’s strange to me that the Wall Street Journal, which is my favorite newspaper to read every day, would allow someone who is so one-sided to spout this kind of nonsense under their brand.

  1. Elon hinted at Germany being the location for GF4 back in 2018. The venue was a perfect place for the announcement, being in Germany. Elon wasn’t in control of the award ceremony schedule either.
