Note From The Curator

Here are the top three articles in this issue of Elon Musk News:

1. Survey says: Elon Musk is still the most admired tech leader among founders

2. SpaceX Poised to Launch The Falcon 9 Again On December 16

3. Hyperloop Transportation Technologies claims more than $100 million in total investment

VC firm First Round Capital conducted a survey of 700 founders who were asked which tech leader they admire most. 23% voted for Musk, making him more than twice as popular as Bezos in second place. While winning this survey doesn't treat Elon to an awards ceremony or shiny trophy, it does demonstrate that his peers greatly respect the work he is doing.

Thank-you for being part of this community! If I can ever be of service to you don't hesitate to reach out.

Featured Quote

"Automotive franchise laws were put in place decades ago to prevent a manufacturer from unfairly opening stores in direct competition with an existing franchise dealer that had already invested time, money and effort to open and promote their business. That would, of course, be wrong, but Tesla does not have this issue. We have granted no franchises anywhere in the world that will be harmed by us opening stores."

Democracy Now!: An urgent message from Amy Goodman

Your donation today will go three times as far!

Happy holidays from Democracy Now!
Donate today—and your donation will be tripled!

Dear Friend,

In these times of war and elections, movements and uprisings, we need a media not sponsored by corporations that profit from war, but a media that's truly independent. 

It's more critical now than ever before.

Democracy Now! is funded by you, our global audience of listeners, viewers and readers. And this year we're celebrating a big anniversary—20 years as your daily global independent news hour.

Right now, in honor of our 20th anniversary, a generous donor will TRIPLE every donation to Democracy Now! That means your gift will go three times as far.

Your donation today—before midnight tonight—will be matched 2:1 through this special #GivingTuesday offer. But don't delay!

Please click here to donate to Democracy Now! today and triple your impact.



The commercial media serves as a mouthpiece for corporate and government interests, giving a platform to the pundits and the pollsters who know so little about so much, explaining the world to us and getting it so wrong.

You need a media that's covering the grassroots movements and bringing you voices of people organizing from the front lines of the world's most pressing issues... especially now.

Remember, your tax-deductible donation today will be worth three times as much—so please be as generous as you can.

From the standoff at Standing Rock to the voices of grassroots leaders discussing how to move forward from this year's election; from Black Lives Matter activists to the stories of those fighting for peace, climate justice, migrant rights and LGBTQ equality; from uncovering government surveillance to fighting attacks on freedom of the press—you count on Democracy Now! to take you to the front lines of the movements that are changing the world.
But none of this is possible without your help.

Please support Democracy Now! today with a tax-deductible donation. We're counting on you to take us into our third decade of daily global independent news!

The need for independent media has never been greater.
When Democracy Now! covers climate change, it's not paid for by the oil, gas, coal and nuclear companies. When we cover war, it's not funded by the weapons manufacturers.

Your donations make our daily news hour possible. 

For two decades, we've remained independent. As we head into this critical time for our nation and our world, we're counting on your continued support.
With your help, Democracy Now! is training the next generation of independent journalists through our internship and fellowship programs. Our LEED platinum studio—the greenest in the country—serves as a classroom for more than 1,000 students who visit each year to view live broadcasts and participate in media workshops.

Our daily news hour—airing on more than 1,400 television and radio stations in 46 countries and to millions online—is only possible with your financial support.

You can click here to donate right now or mail your contribution to:
