Elon Musk had some choice words for reporters Thursday.
The Tesla CEO sounded off on Twitter at media organizations Reuters, Business Insider and CNBC. Musk accused both Reuters and Business Insider of publishing false or misleading stories. He also suggested that CNBC features analysts with poor prediction records.
Musk has criticized journalists in the past and has even said he plans to start an organization that rates reporters. The CEO has had a contentious history with the media and bristled at the amount of attention trained on Tesla from both reporters and investors.
In response to Musk's tweet storm, CNBC's Phil LeBeau invited Elon Musk to call in and comment.
“If there is something that is being inaccurately portrayed or is wrong, by all means, call in today. We’d be happy to put you on the air, " LeBeau said on CNBC's "Power Lunch. "
Musk did not call in, but he did tweet in response.
Musk's harshest criticism was reserved for Business Insider reporter Linette Lopez, who he said published "several false articles" about Tesla and paid a former employee to give her valuable intellectual property on Tesla. Business Insider Editor-in-Chief Alyson Shontell responded to Musk on Twitter, saying the publication doesn't compensate sources and stands by Lopez's reporting.
Musk berated Lopez for saying she sees "eye to eye" with Jim Chanos in a tweet with a link to a story she wrote about his tips for investing in China. Chanos is head of Kynikos Associates and a prominent short seller of Tesla.
Reuters didn't respond to emails seeking comment. Tesla didn't return a request for further comment.
Tesla has struggled in recent months. Investors have criticized the company for burning through cash as it races to ramp up production of its Model 3 midsize sedan, which is months behind schedule. To keep pace, Tesla's added a production line in a temporary tent on its factory grounds in Fremont, California.
The rushed production schedule has worker safety under scrutiny. On Wednesday, auto blog Jalopnik reported that California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health has opened an investigation into the company in response to an unspecified employee complaint. This is the third such probe since April.
Tesla was not immediately available for comment to CNBC on the investigation, but has defended its safety record in the past.
